Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the honey, soy sauce and oil in a bowl. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Arrange chicken in a large deep baking tray and pour over any remaining honey mixture. Bake, turning chicken halfway through cooking, for 20 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.

STEP 2

Place the rice and peas in a large microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave on high for 2 mins or until heated through. Add the carrot, capsicum, spring onion and coriander stalks.  Season with salt and stir to combine.

STEP 3

Arrange the rice mixture on a large serving plate. Slice the chicken and arrange over the rice mixture. Drizzle with any pan juices and sprinkle with coriander leaves to serve.
