Ingredients

  • 2 free-range chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp jerk paste or marinade

  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • 75ml coconut cream
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

  1. In a bowl, coat the chicken breasts in the jerk paste or marinade and a little olive oil, and leave for 10 minutes to marinate.
  2. Drain the pineapple pieces, place the pineapple in a bowl and stir in the diced red chilli to make a quick salsa. Set aside.
  3. Bring the stock to the boil in a saucepan, stir in the coconut cream and spring onion, then add the basmati rice, breaking it up with a spoon. Simmer for a couple of minutes until warmed through. Season to taste.
