Diced Chicken Thigh
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel). Pop the wedges onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. Roast on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
Meanwhile, put the water (see ingredients for amount) in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the BBQ sauce, cider vinegar, chipotle paste and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring the sauce to the boil, giving it a good stir to ensure everything is combined.
Once the sauce is boiling, lower the heat to medium, stir in the chicken and cover the pan with a lid. Simmer until the chicken is cooked and tender, 15-20 mins, stirring halfway and lowering the heat if necessary. Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat and transfer just the chicken to a board with a slotted spoon. Roughly chop the chicken. IMPORTANT: Wash hands after handling raw chicken and its packaging. The chicken is safe to eat when no longer pink in the middle.
While everything cooks, trim and thinly slice the spring onion. Trim and coarsely grate the carrot (no need to peel). Grate the cheese. Drain and rinse the black beans in a colander (see ingredients for amount). Pop half the beans into a medium bowl and roughly mash with a fork. Once the chicken is cooked and out of your pan, add the black beans (both whole and crushed) and carrot to the remaining sauce in the pan.
Stir everything together, then boil vigorously on high heat until reduced to a thick sauce, 4-5 mins. TIP: Stir frequently and cook for a bit longer if you need to - you want it really thick! Stir in the chicken and simmer for 2 mins, then remove from the heat. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
When the wedges are ready, transfer them to an ovenproof dish. Spoon the chicken mixture on top of the wedges. Sprinkle on the cheese and bake in the oven until the cheese is golden and bubbly, 5-6 mins. Remove from the oven, sprinkle over the spring onion and serve. Enjoy!
