Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Trim the aubergine, then cut into roughly 1cm pieces.

2

Pop a deep saucepan (with a tight-fitting lid) on medium heat with the oil (see pantry for amount).

When the oil is hot, add the garlic and cook for 30 secs. Stir in the rice until coated, 1 min. Add the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) and the chicken stock paste. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid. Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

3

While the rice cooks, pop the aubergine onto a large baking tray.

Drizzle with oil, sprinkle over half the chermoula spice mix, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. 

When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until soft and golden, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.

4

Meanwhile, roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).

Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed, then finely chop (see ingredients for amount). 

In a medium bowl, add the chicken and remaining chermoula spice mix. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then rub to coat.

5

Lay the chicken thighs flat onto a baking tray. Roast on the middle shelf of your oven until browned and cooked through, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

While the chicken roasts, in a small bowl, combine the yoghurt and half the parsley. 

6

When everything's ready, slice the chicken into 1cm slices. Fluff up the rice with a fork and stir through the harissa paste and remaining parsley. Share between your bowls.

Top with the roasted aubergine and chicken.

Drizzle over the parsley yoghurt. Sprinkle with the chilli to finish (add less if you'd prefer things milder).

Enjoy!
