1 teaspoon Turmeric

1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

¾ cup White Rice

3 unit Chicken Stock Concentrate

1 unit Tomato

1 unit Red Onion

1 clove Garlic

1 unit Lemon

¼ ounce Cilantro

10 ounce Diced Chicken Thighs

4 ounce Peas

2 teaspoon Cooking Oil

½ teaspoon Sugar




• Heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add half the turmeric (all for 4 servings) and half the smoked paprika (you’ll use the rest later); cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Add rice, stock concentrates, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-20 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to use in Step 5.

• While rice cooks, wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and thinly slice half the onion (whole onion for 4 servings). Halve lemon. Dice tomato into ½-inch pieces. Peel and mince or grate garlic. Pick cilantro leaves from stems.

• In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine sliced onion, ½ tsp sugar, juice from half the lemon, and a pinch of salt (1 tsp sugar and juice from whole lemon for 4 servings). • Cover with plastic wrap and microwave until onion is softened, 30-60 seconds. Set aside.

• Open package of chicken* and drain off any excess liquid. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken in an even layer; season with remaining smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned on the bottom, 2-3 minutes. • Add tomato and garlic; continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and tomato is slightly softened, 3-5 minutes more.

• Fluff rice with a fork. • To pan with chicken, add rice and peas; stir to combine. Taste and season with salt if desired.

• Divide chicken and rice between shallow bowls. Top with cilantro leaves and as much pickled onion (draining first) as you like. Serve. Chicken is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 165°.
