To Serve


  1. Warm one tablespoon of the oil in the saucepan set over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, until it starts to soften. Reduce the heat and add the rice, stirring constantly for a further 3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes, garlic, chilli (if using), tomato purée and cumin and turn the heat back up. Stir for 1 minute.
  2. Dissolve the stock cube in the boiling water and add to the saucepan. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the rice is cooked through.
  3. While the rice is cooking, warm the remaining tablespoon of oil in a frying pan set over a medium heat and add the chicken strips. Once they have browned, add the pepper strips and spice mix. Cook for 10 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through.
  4. Plate up the rice and chicken along with some salad leaves, a dollop of Greek yogurt, guacamole and salsa. Garnish with the coriander leaves and serve.
