Utensils

Pot with Lid

Instructions

Boil the Rice
1
  • 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).
Coat the Chicken
2
  • 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!

Brown the Chicken
3
  • 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.

Add the Tomatoes
4
  • 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.
Finishing Touches
5
  • 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!

Dish Up
6
  • Divide the peas and rice between bowls.
  • Top with the fried chicken steaks and buttery tomatoes.
  • Drizzle with aioli and sweet chilli sauce.
