  • Heat the oil or butter in a deep frying pan and gently fry the onion for 3-4 minutes.

  • Add the chicken and sprinkle in the packet contents. Cook over a medium heat for 7-8 minutes, or until the chicken is browned.

  • Stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to the boil.

  • Cover the pan and cook on a medium heat for 14-15 minutes, or until the rice is al dente and the liquid has been absorbed. Give the rice a quick stir occasionally whilst cooking, but remember to replace the lid.

  • Vegetarian Suggestions:

  • Simply replace the chicken breasts with Quorn meat-free chicken-style strips, or similar meat-free product.

  • Vegetable Biryani - Try replacing the chicken with a selection of aubergines, mushrooms and peppers. Simply add the diced vegetables instead of the chicken, but only cook for 3-4 minutes. Then follow the remaining cooking instructions for a delicious Vegetable Biryani
