Instructions

Roast the Chicken
1
  • Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Peel and grate the garlic.
  • On a lined baking tray, rub the chicken with Thai spice, salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil.
  • Sprinkle over the sesame seeds.
  • Cook on the top shelf, 25-30 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken. Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? This is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Boil the Rice
2
  • Meanwhile, pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and cover with the lid.
  • Leave to cook for 12 mins, then remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Char the Broccoli
3
  • Trim the tip of the broccoli. Cut head into small florets and stem into 2cm pieces.
  • Zest and quarter the lime.
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, fry the broccoli for 2-3 mins, add the garlic and cook for 30 secs. 
  • Add a splash of water and cover with a lid or some foil. Cook until tender, 4-5 mins. Once cooked, transfer the broccoli to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Make the Sauce
4
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat. 
  • Add 75ml water (double for 4p), red Thai paste, ketjap manis and honey.
  • Bring to the boil and cook until reduced by half, 3-5 mins.
  • Once reduced, remove from the heat. 

TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop the sachet in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.

Finishing Touches
5
  • Stir 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p) into the sauce. 
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lime juice. 
  • Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if required.
  • Once cooked, stir the lime zest through the rice, fluffing it up as you go.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Share the zesty lime rice between bowls.
  • Top with the sesame chicken, spooning over the sauce from the pan.
  • Serve the broccoli alongside.
  • Place any remaining lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
