  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 400g pack Asda Frozen Diced Chicken
  • 1 tsp frozen garlic, chopped
  • 4 tsp Asda Moroccan Rub
  • 250ml hot chicken stock
  • 200g frozen sliced peppers
  • 4 x 200g sachets Asda Frozen Golden Vegetable Rice
  • 100g raisins (or sultanas)
  • 75g whole blanched almonds
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the chicken over a low heat, stirring, until it changes colour. Add the garlic and Moroccan Rub and cook for 2 minutes.

  • Transfer to a pan and add the chicken stock. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, then add the sliced peppers. Return to a simmer and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  • Add the rice and raisins or sultanas, cover and cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the stock is simmering and the rice is really hot.

  • Meanwhile, toss the almonds in a dry frying pan over a low heat until golden (they burn easily, so watch them). Add to the rice and serve.
