Piri piri chicken with spicy rice

By BaxterStorey 06 Sep 2018


  • 4 skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 skin-on chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 tablespoons - marinade
  • 2 peppers (any colour)
  • 1/2 bunch spring onions - sliced
  • 4 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 250g cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • Vegetables or salad (optional)


1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Slash each piece of chicken 3 times, so the marinade can really flavour the meat. Pour over the sauce and leave in the fridge to marinate, if you have time. If not, mix well and arrange, skin-side up, in a roasting tin.
2. Cook for 30 minutes, then increase heat to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and cook for about 15 minutes more until the skin is crispy and golden.
3. When the chicken is almost ready, heat the oil in a frying pan. Cook the peppers and white parts of the spring onions for 5 minutes. Tip in the purée & paprika, stir, then add the rice, breaking up with a wooden spoon so all the grains are coated well.
4. Use a high heat and scrape any that sticks off the bottom so you get some soft and some crispy parts. Heat until piping hot. Scatter the green parts of the spring onion on top and serve with the chicken, and some vegetables or salad, if you like.
