    When the onions begin to go translucent add the garlic, remaining dried spices and tomato puree to the pan. Cook for 3 more minutes then add the stock cube with 300ml water.
  4. 4
    Return the chicken thighs to the pan and cover. Bring to the boil then reduce to simmer for 20 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the chicken is cooked through.

    Add the peas, Ben's Original™ rice and parsley to the pan and mix through to combine. Cook for 5 more minutes to heat the peas and rice through and allow them to absorb the flavours.
