I start by prepping the chicken. The plant based chicken I like to use is by the Vegetarian Butcher, found in most Supermarkets in the UK, These are nugget sized pieces of soy protein that have the texture and taste that is remarkably like chicken.

Spread the “chicken” onto a metal baking tray and cover in Nandos medium marinade sauce and place in an oven at 160C for 15 mins.

Now start to prepare the rice and peas. (after 15 mins check the chicken and turn the oven down to low.

Next cook the spicy rice, as this takes around 20 mins. (remember to check the chicken)

While the rice is cooking you can then prepare the macho peas. These can be kept warm in a low oven until the rest is ready and takes around 10 mins.
