Peruvian Chicken4.3/5 (BASED ON 187 reviews)
In our take on Peruvian style chicken, tender chicken thighs are marinated in a latin-american style rub with garlic, lime and chipotle. This works well with our smoky spicy rice, which is tossed with sweetcorn and roasted red peppers. The element that brings it all together is a zingy coriander and green chilli spiked yoghurt – our take on the classic Peruvian “green sauce"!

Our 30 minute recipe
Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Mix the Peruvian Spice Rub with 1 tbsp of olive oil in a small glass. Make some slashes in the flesh side of the chicken thighs to help them cook more evenly then put them on a lined baking tray. Pour your Peruvian marinade over the chicken and rub it in really well on both sides, then bake the chicken in the oven for 20-25 mins, or until cooked through.
Heat a little oil in a pan over high heat and then add the red onion and the red pepper. Stir fry for 4 mins. Add the sweetcorn and the Spicy Rice Mix and stir well. Reduce the heat and let it continue to cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables have browned a little. Add the rice (straight from the packet, no need to pre-heat) along with 1 tbsp water and continue to stir fry for 3 mins. Then turn off the heat and keep warm.
Put the Green Sauce Seasoning and the chopped coriander in a small mixing bowl and add the yoghurt. Mix well, and keep aside.
Serve portions of your spicy rice onto plates with chicken on top and a dollop of green sauce on the side as a condiment for your chicken and spicy rice.

The spice on the chicken was just right, with a bit of heat to the spice. It is brilliant how well the chicken absorbed the spices without any marination. Rice was nice too (I cooked my own basmati rice). The only criticism I have is that overall the dish can be a bit dry and I didn’t think the coriander dip really worked with the dish.

Nice but not enough marinade for the amount of chicken they recommend.
Abi - Jul 16, 2018
Bit meh, chicken thighs took a whole lot longer than the recipe said!

Wasn't sure on the yoghurt and the chicken was a bit bland
Heather - Jun 07, 2018
Pleasantly surprised, quite spicy but nice. We used chicken breast. Green sauce a bit strange on its own but went well with the chicken. We cooked basmati rice as i hate the ready cooked stuff but it worked very well and the leftover rice was great cold too.
Helene - May 31, 2018
Delicious recipe, a unique spicy flavour we haven't tried before. We used fat free yoghurt and it worked brilliantly. We will be making this one again.

Great spicy smoky flavour!!
Katherine - Apr 28, 2018
The chicken rub particularly delish
Sarah - Apr 24, 2018
Julian - Apr 23, 2018
Fantastic highly spiced dish with lime flavours. The green sauce is the opposite of what you expect, rather than cooling it boosts the spiciness. A must try but only if you love hot food .

Very tasty rice and chicken, and the coriander dressing helped pull it all together. I enjoyed this a lot.
Elaine - Mar 28, 2018
Really delicious. Not sure why the chilli rating is two though. Nice little kick of heat. Would love an option to spice it up too!
