Peruvian Chicken4.2/5 (BASED ON 2473 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
Marinate the chicken
Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7.
Mix the PERUVIAN SPICE RUB with 1 tbsp of oil in a small glass.
Make slashes in the chicken thighs on both sides then put them on a lined baking tray and marinate them with the oil and spice rub on both sides. Bake in the oven for 20-30 mins, or until cooked through.
Prep the smoky spicy rice
Heat some oil in a pan over high heat then fry the red onion and the red pepper for 4 mins.
Add the sweetcorn and the SPICY RICE MIX and stir well. Reduce the heat and cook until the veg has browned a little, stirring occasionally.
Add the rice (from the packet, no need to pre-heat) along with 1 tbsp water and stir fry for 3 mins.
Make your green sauce
Mix the GREEN SAUCE SEASONING with the yoghurt in a small bowl, then add the coriander. Mix well, and keep aside.
Serve the chicken and spicy rice and a dollop of green sauce on the side.

Think this would have benefited from more marinade. Rice and yoghurt sauce were very tasty though.
Rachael - Dec 08, 2019
I doubled up on the green veg. Lovely sauce.
Victoria - Dec 07, 2019
Recipe is small, to add more chicken or rice meant that the flavour was reduced to almost nothing
Emily - Dec 01, 2019
This was a nice meal! I added potatoes as well to the meal and this was nice! I used veg rice and then added the seasoning to it whilst on the hob. The meat seasoning was nice, This was a nice dish :)

Not very tasty of it wasn’t for the flavoured yogurt which was delicious this would have been bland

If not using microwavable rice, cook it before adding. 3 mins of stir-frying basmati rice with a splash of water gives you bullets! Flavour was a bit bland and don't fancy again.

Love it, simple yet full of flavour

Yumbo scrumbo - this one took us by surprise...

Chris - Nov 09, 2019
Tasty, not a fan of chicken on the bone so used 2 chicken breasts and worked well.
Karen - Nov 06, 2019
Our favourite one ever. Tastes delicious.
Chris - Nov 04, 2019
Really enjoyed this - easy to cook and healthy too. Chicken was great. I used mushroom and peas in the rice instead of sweet corn and pepper because I prefer peas and my girlfriend can’t eat peppers. I thought the rice seasoning was a bit bland - some salt and pepper and Tabasco sorted that. The yogurt was tasty but I feel it’s a bit lazy - we need another pot for this recipe - ah chuck that in an get them to mix it with yogurt. Would defo have this again though.
Ryan - Nov 04, 2019
Chicken was awesome. I thought the sauce was nice on its own but didn’t really go with the chicken or rice. Still a nice meal
Stuart - Oct 30, 2019

Chicken tasty but rice and yogurt a bit too fragrant. Had much nicer ones than this.
Plum - Oct 22, 2019
This was delicious. The green sauce was the making of it. I used salmon instead is chicken which worked well. I used less rice and added mushrooms in the mix too. Editing my order to get it again.
