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 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    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.

  • 2.

    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.

  • 3.

    Put the Green Sauce Seasoning and the chopped coriander in a small mixing bowl and add the yoghurt. Mix well, and keep aside.

  • 4.

    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.

Very nice.

Graham - Jun 15, 2018

Lovely

Laura - Jun 14, 2018

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.

Rachel - May 29, 2018

Very nice and spicy and easy to do. Didn’t like the green sauce though.

Katherine - Apr 28, 2018

The chicken rub particularly delish

Sarah - Apr 24, 2018

really tasty

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!

Julie - Mar 28, 2018

James - Mar 17, 2018

Nice unusual flavours. Could maybe use chicken breast or even dice it up.

Ian - Mar 16, 2018

Nice dish

Kathryn - Mar 09, 2018

It’s a good flavoursome dish. Although I wasn’t such a big fan of the dipping sauce they recommended & the chicken marinade can easily get charred.

Shaun - Mar 07, 2018

full of fkavour.. easy to make. will be a firm favourite

Barbara - Mar 07, 2018

This is the second time we've had this very nice

Louise - Mar 04, 2018

Yum! I really wasn’t expecting to be particularly wowed by this but it was a really lovely flavour combo.

Mahiyar - Mar 03, 2018

This dish has a lot going for it: healthy ingredients, pretty quick and easy to make and tasty! We particularly enjoyed the lovely flavours of the spicy rice and the 'yoghurt sauce'. As the Peruvian Spice Rub didn't seem to make too much of an impact on the chicken itself (which was more bland than we had expected), the next time we make this dish, we will marinade the chicken overnight.

julia - Feb 28, 2018

Really nice flavours

Alexandra - Feb 23, 2018

Favourite one yet!!

Karen - Feb 23, 2018

Lovely blend of spices and so easy to do..just what I like!

Laura - Feb 22, 2018

Absolutely beautiful. We cooked the chicken for just under 20 mins so it was lovely & moist as well as spicy. Loved the spicy rice too. Will get again.

Emma - Feb 22, 2018

Chicken was ok (prefer maggi) rice dish nice but could have stronger flavours. Green sauce went in the bin.

Allison - Feb 21, 2018

Was nice but not as spicy as I thought it was going to be

Christine - Feb 17, 2018

Green sauce yucky :(
