Chargrilled chicken within harissa and lime fried rice

This is definite comfort food but a healthier option and so delicious.


120g uncooked rice

4 spring onions sliced finely

1 clove garlic crushed

1 tsp crushed ginger

1 carrot diced into small pieces

1 green or red chilli sliced

1 tbls sesame oil

2 eggs

Vegetable oil

1 tsp harissa sauce or chilli sauce

1tbls fish sauce

Juice of ⅓ lime

Fresh coriander


For the chicken

2 chicken breasts

2 TBS natural yoghurt

TSP cumin powder

TSP turmeric powder


To make fried rice: 


I cook the rice earlier that day so it’s fully cooled

Allow the cooked rice to cool thoroughly by spreading it on a baking sheet after its cooked. When it is cool, refrigerate. When the rice is cold, proceed with the rest of the recipe.

Heat a wok or a large frying pan over high heat until it is hot. Add 1 tbs of vegetable oil, and when it is very hot and slightly smoking, add the shallots, garlic, ginger, spring onions and stir-fry for 1 minute. 

Then add the carrots, season with salt and black pepper and continue to stir-fry for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and put the contents of the pan into a bowl. Wipe the pan clean.

Combine the eggs, sesame oil and a pinch of salt in a small bowl and set aside. Reheat the wok or pan over high heat until it is hot. Add 1 tbsp of oil, and when it is very hot, turn the heat to moderate and add the eggs. 

Stir-fry the eggs for 2 minutes, then add the cooked rice and stir-fry it for 3 minutes, mixing well. 

Add the cooked veg and harissa and continue to stir-fry for 5 minutes. 


For the chicken


Turn the grill on

Mix yoghurt cumin and turmeric in a bowl. Use half the mixture to cover the top side of the chicken breast and place under the grill for 5 min. 

Turn over and use the remainder of mixture to cover the other side. Cook for 5 min. 


To serve, give the rice a quick heat up. Add in the lime juice and chopped coriander and mix through,


Divide the rice between 2 plates, slice the chicken breast and place on top. 


Delicious spice, zingy fresh dish.
