Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Now, let's get started!

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous knob of butter over a high heat

Once melted, add the diced chicken breast with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 1-2 min

3 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Add the ground cuminturmeric and roasted garlic paste to the pan and cook for 30 secs or until fragrant

4 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Meanwhile, squeeze the pouch[es] of the steamed white basmati rice to separate the grains

Tear the top corner of the pouch[es] (just a little!) and microwave for 2 min or until piping hot

Tip: If you're cooking two pouches, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly

5 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Add the dried cranberries to the pan and cook for 30 secs further

6 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Add the spinach and soy sauce to the pan and cook for 2-3 min further or until the spinach is starting to wilt and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

Note: Please make sure you cook your chicken thoroughly (until piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies

7 2387 - 10-Min Jewelled Chicken, Pistachio & Cranberry Pilaf

Add the steamed basmati rice to the pan and give everything a good mix up 

Cook for 30 secs further or until the rice is completed coated in all the spices – this is your jewelled chicken & cranberry pilaf
