Hi everyone, I’m Luke Mangan and I hope you're doing really well. I’m back in the home kitchen where I’ve been playing with lots of the recipes and I’ve got this ripper for you, honey soy chicken, brown rice, spring onions and carrots and it's really really tasty and really simple to prepare and you know what? It's going to feed a family of 5 for under $20, so let's get cooking.
Now for the marinade for the chicken about 100mls of honey. And then you get some soy, about 100ml of soy and I use a light soy, umm I find it’s not so intense. And then you get the good olive oil, and you add about 100 mls of olive oil and mix that really well together and then you've got these beautiful tasty marinade.
So what we're gonna do is get these chicken thighs and just dip them into that mix, coat it well and then just put it into a backing dish. Any excess the Marinaid, I like to just pour over to make sure it's all nicely covered. So straight into an oven, 180 degrees about 20 minutes or until it's cooked.
Alright so while that chickens cooking, we're gonna make the base to this beautiful rice salad, so this stuff is really good, so we just open that up and we're gonna heat that in a microwave for a about 2 or so minutes ‘till it's really hot.
Next step let's grate the carrots, we’re gonna grate them and mix it through the Rice. Then we're gonna slice the red capsicum and we're gonna mix that. Chop the spring onions, chop the coriander, mix it all together. I’m just gonna add a few peas… give that a really good mix. A good pinch of salt. And we just put that on the base, just like that. Look at that, how pretty is that and that's gonna be the base we’re just gonna put that beautiful honey soy chicken right on top.
And then my friends, all these beautiful juices left and that acts as our beautiful dressing and there you have honey soy chicken with brown rice coriander to feed a family of 4 for under $20. For more value recipes like this go to coles.com.au
