Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into 3cm cubes
  • 300g long grain rice
  • 150g frozen peas
  • 150g frozen sweetcorn
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
Method
  • Mix the soy sauce, ginger, garlic, honey and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the chicken, cover with cling film and marinate in the fridge for at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours if you have time.

  • Rinse the rice and place in a pan, add 1.2L water. Bring to the boil and stir once. Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring in the peas and sweetcorn for the last 5 minutes.

  • Thread the chicken cubes onto wooden skewers, brush lightly with oil and cook on a griddle pan for 3-5 minutes on each side until cooked. Alternatively, cook under a grill for 5 minutes each side. Cut through a cube to check they are cooked through.

  • Drain the rice in a sieve. Fluff up with a fork and stir in the spring onions. Serve with the chicken.
