Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken thighs (cubed)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cajun spice mix
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (punnet)
  • 12 bamboo (soaked, skewers)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup long grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas (thawed)
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • lemon wedges (to serve)

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine chicken, oil and Cajun spice. Mix well to coat the chicken. Thread chicken and tomatoes onto 12 skewers. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine stock and rice. Bring to a boil on high. Then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, 10-15 minutes, until rice is just tender and stock absorbed. Remove from heat. Stir peas and spinach into the rice. Set aside, covered, 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, pre-heat a grill pan on medium heat. Cook chicken for 8-10 minutes, turning, until cooked through.
  4. Serve skewers on a bed of rice, accompanied with lemon wedges.
