    Ingredients

    1. 2 tbsp olive oil - USE FRYLIGHT TO MAKE RECIPE FREE
    2. 8 bone-in chicken thighs
    3. 1 large onion, finely chopped
    4. 3 garlic cloves, sliced
    5. 2 tsp garam masala
    6. 1 tsp ground ginger
    7. 1 green chilli, finely sliced
    8. 300g basmati rice
    9. 650ml chicken stock, hot
    10. 200g frozen mixed green vegetables
    11. 2 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
    Method

    1. 1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/ gas 5. Heat the oil in a large roasting tin on the hob. Add the chicken and fry over a high heat until golden brown all over. Remove and set aside.
    2. 2. Add the onion and cook gently for 6-8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, garam masala, ginger and chilli. Stir in the rice and cook for 1 minute. Top with the chicken and pour over the stock.
    3. 3. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes, until the rice has nearly absorbed all of the stock. Add a dash of hot water if the rice looks dry. Uncover and stir in the frozen vegetables. Re-cover and bake for 8-10 minutes, until everything is cooked. Scatter with parsley to serve.
    Chef's tip

    Use salmon fillets with skin instead of the chicken. Pan-fry briefly in step 1, then put on the rice in step 3, after the vegetables.
