Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 bone-in chicken thighs, with skin
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 green chilli, finely sliced
  • 300g basmati rice
  • 650ml chicken stock, hot
  • 200g frozen mixed green vegetables
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/ gas 5. Heat the oil in a large roasting tin on the hob. Add the chicken and fry over a high heat until golden brown all over. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add the onion and cook gently for 6-8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, garam masala, ginger and chilli. Stir in the rice and cook for 1 minute. Top with the chicken and pour over the stock.
  3. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes, until the rice has nearly absorbed all of the stock. Add a dash of hot water if the rice looks dry. Uncover and stir in the frozen vegetables. Re-cover and bake for 8-10 minutes, until everything is cooked. Scatter with parsley to serve.

  1. Use salmon fillets with skin instead of the chicken. Pan-fry briefly in step 1, then put on the rice in step 3, after the vegetables.
