Peruvian Chicken4.2/5 (BASED ON 1304 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.

Don't give many 5 stars but this was worth it. The chicken is really tasty. The rice and green sauce while nothing special individually, mixed together and eaten with the chicken is brilliant. Loved it, highly recommended.

Love this dish. So simple and so tasty. The green sauce brings it all together. I bashed the spicy rice mix up a bit in the mortar and pestle first.
