1 Prep

Pre-heat the grill. Rinse the rice. Peel and finely chop the shallots. De-seed and chop the pepper. Finely chop the parsley and mint leaves. Wrap the chicken breasts in cling film and place them on a chopping board. Using a rolling pin, bash the chicken breasts until halved in thickness.

2 Marinate chicken

In a bowl, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, red vinegar, smoked paprika, soy sauce, honey, sriracha (spicy!), chipotle (spicy!) and oil with the Worcestershire sauce. This is your Peri-Peri marinade. Place the chicken escalopes into the marinade and turn to coat. (See pro tip!)

3 Start rice

Heat a pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Add the shallots and bell pepper and fry for 3 min. Add the turmeric and chilli flakes (spicy!) and fry for 1 min further. Add the rinsed ricestock cube and measured water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 min until the rice is cooked.

5 Make peas

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the peas. Cook for 2 min. Remove from the heat, and add half of the chopped parsley and all of the mint. Toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

6 Serve

Finish the spicy rice with a squeeze of lemon juice, the remaining parsley, salt and pepper. Remove the chicken from the tray. Add the mayonnaise to the leftover marinade. Mix well. This is your Peri-Peri mayonnaise. Serve the peri-peri chicken with the rice, peas and peri-peri mayonnaise to the side.
