Under 30: Garlic and Habanero Chicken with Rice & Peas


Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 25 mins (plus overnight marinade)

Ingredients:

For the chicken
- 4 chicken breasts
- Garlic and Habanero sauce
- Salt and pepper, for seasoning
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped

For the rice & peas
- 200g basmati rice 
- 400g can coconut milk
- 1 bunch spring onions, sliced
- 2 large Thyme sprigs
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tsp ground allspice
- 2 x 410g cans kidney beans



Instructions:

1. Make a few slashes in the chicken breasts and combine all the ingredients for the marinade and pour the marinade over the meat, rubbing it all over. Cover and leave to marinate overnight in the fridge.

2. Pre-heat to 180C. Put the chicken on an oven tray and cook for 25 mins until tender and cooked through.

3. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the rice & peas. Rinse the rice in plenty of cold water, then tip it into a large saucepan with all the remaining ingredients except the kidney beans. Season with salt, add 300ml cold water and set over a high heat. Once the rice begins to boil, turn it down to a medium heat, cover and cook for 10 mins.

4. Add the beans to the rice, then cover with a lid. Leave off the heat for 5 mins until all the liquid is absorbed. Squeeze the roasted lime over the chicken and serve with the rice & peas, and some hot sauce if you like it really spicy.

  13. You can’t beat a great marinade! Chris loves chicken dishes so I will have to recreate this for him one day, I’m sure it would work equally well as a marinade for tofu for me as well!
