  • 800g Tilda Brown & White Rice
  • 5 tbsp oil
  • 20 chicken pieces
  • 5 large onions, chopped
  • 5 red peppers, deseeded and chopped into large chunks
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 5 tbsp tomato purée
  • 5 tbsp dried thyme
  • 2.4ltr chicken stock
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

  1. Heat the oil in a large casserole dish and brown the chicken pieces on all sides and set aside.
  2. Lower the heat, add the onions and peppers, and gently cook for 10 minutes until softened.
  3. Add the garlic and ham, and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato purée and cook for 1 minute more.
