- Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
- Stir in the stock powder and rice and bring to the boil.
- Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 mins.
- Remove from the heat.
- Keep covered for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
- Meanwhile, place your hand flat on top of the chicken breast and slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks.
- Toss the sliced chicken with paprika, salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging we use to keep it fresh. It will still taste delicious once cooked!
- Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- When hot, add the chicken and season with salt and pepper.
- Fry until browned, 2-3 mins on each side.
TIP: Cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded.
- Once the chicken has browned, add the cherry tomatoes to the pan.
- Fry until chicken is cooked through and tomatoes are softened, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
- When the tomatoes have softened, use the back of a spoon to carefully burst the tomatoes and release the juices.
- Add a knob of butter to the pan along with the tomato paste, stirring together to create a buttery tomato sauce.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Fluff up the rice with a fork and stir through the peas.
TIP: Loosen with a splash of water if necessary!
- Divide the peas and rice between bowls.
- Top with the fried chicken steaks and buttery tomatoes.
- Drizzle with aioli and sweet chilli sauce.
