  • Using your hands mix in the bowl ensuring the veg is pretty much covered by the oil…
  • Step 6:

  • Place all the veg in a foil lined pirex dish or shallow roasting tin.

  • Step 11:

  • Put in the oven for about 35mins.
  • Step 12:

  • Halfway through you can bast the chicken with the juices in the pirex dish to ensure the chicken doesn’t dry out, although the steam from the juices of the veg prevents this anyway….
  • Step 13:

  • 10 mins before the Chicken is ready place the rice in the pan of pre boiled water to cook.
  • Step 14:

  • Once the rice is cooked take the bag out of the water and lie flat on a plate, flatten out a bit and use scissors to cut down the middle.
