  • 300 g chicken breast
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 100 g sweetcorn
  • 1/2 cup red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 tomato, peeled & chopped
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 chilli, chopped
  • 1 handful coriander, chopped


  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes


  • Chop the chicken into cubes. Season with salt, pepper, spices and crushed garlic.
  • Heat the oil in the pan over medium-high heat, and fry the chicken for about 3-4 minutes. Add in the chopped onion and diced peppers and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Next, add the drained sweetcorn, beans and the cooked rice. Mix well and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, and add the peeled and diced tomato, then mix.
  • To serve, divide the rice between plates, top with avocado, drizzle with lime juice, and sprinkle with chopped chili and coriander.


- To easily peel the tomato, cut a cross in the top of the tomato (not the stalk end) and pour boiling water over it.  After about 1 minute, the skin will come off easily.
