Spice Up the Chicken

a) Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9. Boil a half-full kettle.

b) In a medium bowl, add the chicken thighs, per peri seasoning, honey (see pantry for amount) and a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.  

c) Lay the chicken thighs flat onto a lined baking tray. Once hot, 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. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Cook the Rice

a) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/4 tsp salt on high heat. Add the rice and cook for 10-12 mins.

b) Drain in a sieve, then pop it on top of the pan and allow to steam.

c) Meanwhile, drain the sweetcorn in a sieve. 

Get Charring

a) Heat a large frying pan on high heat (no oil). Once hot, add the sweetcorn and cook until charred, 5-6 mins. Adjust the heat if necessary. Stir only twice during this time - you want the sweetcorn to pick up some nice colour. Once cooked, transfer the corn to a small bowl and wipe the pan clean.

b) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.

c) In a medium bowl, combine the red wine vinegar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount). Set aside.


Build the Flavour

a) Pop the (now empty) frying pan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. 

b) Add the onion to the pan and stir-fry until softened, 4-5 mins. Stir in the garlic and Central American spice mix and cook for 1 min. Return the charred corn to the pan. 

c) Pour in the chicken stock paste and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 1-2 mins.


Finish the Rice

a) When the rice is cooked, add to the frying pan along with the butter (see pantry for amount). Stir to combine, then remove from the heat.

b) Taste the rice and season with salt and pepper if needed.

c) When everything's ready, toss the rocket leaves in the dressing until evenly coated. 

Serve Up

a) Share the chicken thighs between your plates. 

b) Serve the charred corn rice next to the chicken. Finish with a drizzle of yoghurt and the rocket leaves alongside.
