Delicious!! I used piri piri chicken breast slices from sainsbury's and it was so good! I do think I added more yoghurt than I should've but the dish was still tasty and it looked almost exactly like the picture. :)

lovely recipe. I didn't have any spicy chicken so i added some more chilli powder to the yoghurt before mixing

once I had put all this together, it looked a little bland, so I added some spring onions and baby vine tomatoes and some extra chilli powder and this brightened it up a bit. However, it was still lacking something, so I won't be making this again.

Lovely. Really fresh & zingy. I used fresh mint & corriander but I wouldn't buy pre-cooked rice again, what a waste of money/packaging.

This was gorgeous, really fresh tasting ( I did use fresh mint) and healthy. I used basmati rice and cooked it in the afternoon, and then chilled it until I needed it which meant this recipe was really quick to prepare! I also used Tesco Piri Piri chicken fillets, which were really tasty too. Even my husband said it was delicious!!

Delicious. Used coriander instead of mint, and creme fraiche instead of yogurt and marinaded the chicken in some chilli. Definitely cook this again.

This was quick and easy to make, and surprisingly filling. I used dried mint as I didn't have any fresh and still tasted good.
