Recipe Ingredients List

  • Chicken Fillets (two)
  • Basmati Rice (130g)
  • Large Tomato (one)
  • Green Pepper (one)
  • Small Onion (one)
  • Green Chillies (two)
  • Olive Oil (one tablespoon)
  • Chilli Powder (one tablespoon)

Step 1
Start to cook the basmati rice as per the package instructions. Make sure to remember that it is cooking while you move onto the next steps – ensuring that you stir it etc. as needed and monitor that it does not become overcooked.

Step 2
Cut up the chicken fillets into cubes or strips and then season them with half a tablespoon of chili powder and salt and pepper (this should be done to taste i.e. to what you and whoever else this spicy chicken stir-fry is being served to likes and tolerates).

Step 3
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and then stir-fry the seasoned chicken for three to four minutes (or until no longer pink). Once cooked, remove it from the frying pan.

Step 4
Cut up the pepper and onion and stir-fry them in the same frying pan until they begin to become softer and more tender. Cut up the tomato and chillies and add them along with half a tablespoon of chilli powder to the frying pan and stir-fry for an additional three to five minutes.

Step 5
Lastly then, add the chicken back to the frying pan and stir-fry everything for a final two minutes. Serve with the basmati rice and enjoy.
