Preparation

For the chicken:

  1. Place the chicken in a shallow bowl and spoon over the black bean sauce. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and tip in the rice. Return the water to the boil and stir well. Lower the heat to a fast simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Cook the chicken under a medium grill for 5 minutes each side or until chicken is cooked.

For the rice:

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the mushroom for 2 minutes. Add the onion and fry until soft but not coloured.
  2. Add the garlic and tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Add the stock and grape juice and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the rice and add the rice to the mushrooms mix and heat through. Season with pepper and salt.
  4. Serve the rice topped with the chicken and garnish with a sprig of coriander.

Tips

If you can not find sun blushed tomatoes use either sun dried or even fresh cherry tomatoes. For a more fiery or zesty version add a fresh chopped chilli, lemon zest or chopped coriander to the rice. White wine makes a delicious alternative to grape juice
