Keep the washing-up down to an absolute minimum with this one-pot supper - you can even eat it out of the cooking dish!
PREP: 5 min COOK: 20 min Serves 2 Recommended Price: £5-£7
1 tsp sunflower oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 large or 3 small boneless, skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into chunks
2 tsp curry paste (choose your favorite)
2/3 mug basmati rice
two-thirds of a mug chicken stock
1 mug frozen mixed vegetables
half a mug frozen leaf spinach
Heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the onion for 5-6 mins until softened. Add the chicken pieces, fry for a further couple of mins just to colour the outside, then stir in curry paste and rice. Cook for another minute.
Pour in the chicken stock and throw in any larger bits of frozen veggies. Bring to the boil, lower the heat, then cover the pan with a lid. Cook for 10 mins, then stir in the remaining veggies. Scatter over the spinach, cover, then cook for 10 mins more until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is tender. Give everything a good stir, season to taste - ready to go.
