Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a large pot of salted water for the rice.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into 8 wedges.
  • Cut half the broccoli into florets (double for 4p). Halve any large florets.
  • In a small bowl, mix the hoisin sauce with the garlic and set aside.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Roast Until Golden
2
  • Pop the chicken, chopped broccoli and onion onto a large (lined) baking tray. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the middle shelf until the chicken is cooked through and veg is tender, 25-30 mins.
Make the Rice
3
  • Meanwhile, add the rice to the boiling water and cook for 10-12 mins.
  • Drain in a sieve and pop back in the pot.
  • Cover with a lid and leave to the side until ready to serve.
Toast the Seeds
4
  • Place a medium pan over medium heat (no oil).
  • Once hot, add the sesame seeds and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 2-3 mins.
  • Once toasted, transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily.

Add Your Sauce
5
  • Just before the chicken is ready, return the (now empty) pan to a medium heat.
  • Pour in the hoisin sauce and 75ml water (double for 4p).
  • Bring to a simmer and allow to bubble away until slightly thickened, 2-3 mins.
  • When the chicken is cooked, transfer to the pan and turn to coat in the sauce until glossy, 1-2 mins.

TIP: Add a splash of water if it's a little dry.

Finish and Serve
6
  • When everything is ready, fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between your plates.
  • Top with the glazed chicken and roast veg.
  • Spoon over the remaining sauce from the pan. 
  • Scatter over the toasted sesame seeds to finish.
