A great comfort food dinner. If you don’t like too much chilli then do leave out the seeds from the chilli.

  • 1 onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 3 bay leaves

  • 1 stick of celery
  • 9 oz rice
  • 30 fl oz chicken stock

  1. Shallow fry the thighs for about 20-25 minutes until they are golden and nearly cooked through, remove from the pan and fry the chopped onion, pepper and celery for 1 minute. Add the rice and garlic and bay leaves and fry for 1 minute then add the chicken stock, chopped red chilli and tomato puree. Put the chicken back in the pan, cover and simmer for 15 minutes occasionally stirring.

  2. If you use brown wholegrain rice then you will need to let the pan simmer for about 30 to 35 minutes and may need to add extra stock so that it does not burn
