Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 4 Chicken Pieces (Thighs or Drumsticks work well)
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 100 g Pine Nuts
  • 70 g Fresh Basil
  • 1 Garlic Clove, crushed
  • 100 ml Olive Oil
  • 1 pouch UNCLE BEN'S® Savoury Chicken Rice
  • 80 g Your Favourite Salad Mix

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 190°C. Line an oven tray with foil. In a large bowl mix together all of the dried herbs/spices with the sunflower oil. Add the chicken pieces and mix until fully coated. Place in a single layer on the tray.
  2. Bake the chicken pieces for 25 minutes, then turn and cook for a further 10 minutes until the juices run clear.
  3. To make the pesto, dry fry the pine nuts in a frying pan over a medium heat until golden and releasing a nutty aroma.
  4. Combine the nuts, basil, garlic and olive oil in a food processor or pestle and mortar and blend until smooth.
  5. Heat the UNCLE BEN'S® rice according to pack instructions then place into bowls. Top with the baked chicken pieces and drizzle over your homemade pesto (any leftovers can be kept in a jar in the fridge for up to a week).
  6. Serve your favourite salad leaves on the side and enjoy.
