Ingredients

For the dirty rice

For the coleslaw

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 240C/220C Fan/Gas 9. Line a baking tray with an ovenproof silicone mat or baking paper.

  2. Slash the chicken thighs with a sharp knife and put in a bowl. Add 50ml/2fl oz of the peri-peri sauce, the smoked paprika and a little sea salt and pepper. Turn the chicken to coat well in the sauce then lay on the baking tray and cook for 20鈥25 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, to make the dirty rice, heat the oil in a deep frying pan over a high heat. Add the onion and cook for 4鈥5 minutes until starting to brown. Add the peppers and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the paprika and cumin and cook for 1 minute.

  4. Grind the saffron with a pestle and mortar and add to the pan with the stock and stock cube. Simmer for 2鈥3 minutes, stirring, until the stock cube has disolved. Add the rice and warm through for 5 minutes.

  5. To make the coleslaw, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

  6. Remove the chicken from the oven, tip the juices from the tray into the rice and stir through. Cook the rice for a further 2 minutes.

  7. If you would like an extra charred flavour, wave a cook鈥檚 blowtorch over the surface of the chicken thighs to lightly char, then brush with the remaining peri-peri sauce. This step is optional, but it does give the chicken a flavour boost!

  8. Serve the chicken with the rice and coleslaw on the side.

Recipe Tips

Alternatively, leave the chicken to cool and then pack into containers, seal and keep in the fridge. Eat within 2 days, either cold or reheated. The coleslaw can also be kept separately in a sealed container in the fridge and eaten within 2 days but the rice is best eaten immediately.
