A different way to cook chicken, seasoning it with spices and combining it with rice. You will be amazed at the result!

Ingredients for 4 portions

  • Chicken breast 400 g
  • Medium-sized onions 2
  • Extra virgin olive oil 4 tbsp (40 g)
  • Paprika to taste
  • Chopped coriander to taste
  • Ginger to taste
  • Vegetable broth  to taste
  • Saffron 1 sachet
  • Basmati rice 320 g



Cut the chicken into pieces; peel and chop the onions.


Brown the onions, then add the chicken. Season with paprika, chopped coriander and ginger.


Add a little broth and cook, adding saffron at the end and seasoning with salt.


Rinse the rice to get rid of the excess starch.


Bring 2 cups of water to the boil, add the rice and boil for 2 minutes. Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for about 18 minutes.


You want almost all the liquid to be absorbed by the end of cooking.


Gently fluff the rice with a fork to separate the grains, adding a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, then mix in with the chicken in a bowl and serve.

Carbon footprint

To limit our impact on the environment, we advise you to remain within 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, including all the courses you eat. Bear in mind that plant-based dishes are more likely to have a low environmental impact.

Even though some of our suggestions exceed the recommended 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, that doesn't mean you should never make them; it's the overall balance that counts. Regularly eating a healthy and eco-friendly diet in the long term offsets even the dishes with the most impact, as long as you don't make them too often.
