For this punchy, wholesome salad, we've coated chicken breast with a Caribbean-inspired seasoning of allspice, paprika and cayenne. Served with seared pineapple and a zingy black rice salad packed with little gem, coriander and a pineapple dressing. Nice 'n' spicy! (Gluten and dairy-free, suitable for coeliacs).

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Boil a kettle

Add the black rice to a pot of plenty of boiled water and cook over a high heat for 30 min or until it's tender (it will still have a slight bite to it when cooked)

Once cooked, drain, return it to the pot and set aside

2 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Meanwhile, heat a dry, large, wide-based pan over a medium heat 

Once hot, add the pineapple rings (reserve the juice!) and cook for 2-4 min on each side or until browned and caramelised

Once browned, transfer to a plate and set aside

Reserve the pan

3 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Meanwhile, place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s]

Carefully slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with two thinner pieces

 

4 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Combine the ground allspice, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) with 1 tsp [2 tsp] black pepper and a very generous pinch of salt on a plate

Mix all the spices together – this is your fiery seasoning

Add the sliced chicken to the fiery seasoning and mix until it's fully coated in all the spices

5 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Return the reserved pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the chicken and cook for 4-5 min on each side pressing down firmly with a spatula until golden and cooked through (no pink meat!)

6 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Meanwhile, shred the little gem lettuce[s]

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Trim, then slice the spring onions finely

Chop the coriander roughly, including the stalks

7 Fiery Jerk Chicken, Pineapple & Black Rice Salad

Combine the reserved pineapple juice in a large bowl with the red wine vinegar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil 

Add the shredded little gem, chopped chilli, (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) chopped spring onion and chopped coriander to the bowl with the drained black rice and give everything a good mix up

Slice the cooked fiery chicken finely
