Chef Ray: Peri-Peri Chicken with Spanish-style Rice

This is yum with a little bit of a spicy bite.

From: Macri, Liz; 5pm Panic (Oct 17) Healthy Food Guide

Serves 4

  • 4x 125gm chicken breast fillets
  • ½ cup peri-peri marinade
  • 3 large courgettes, thinly sliced lengthways
  • red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large capsicums (1 red, 1 yellow), finely chopped
  • 2x 250gm pouch microwavable brown rice
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ cup chopped fresh coriander
  1. Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally to form 2 small fillets. Place in a large bowl with marinade. Turn to coat. Set aside.
  2. Preheat a barbecue hotplate or spray a grill pan with olive oil and set over a high heat. Cook courgette for 1-2 minutes, or until charred and tender. Transfer to serving plates.
  3. Reheat barbecue or same grill pan over a medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, spray a medium non-stick frying pan with oil and set over a medium-high heat. Cook onion and capsicums, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until golden and tender. Add brown rice and paprika and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through. Stir in coriander. Serve chicken with rice and courgette.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
