  2. Meanwhile, toss the chicken in the spices and coriander. Heat a pan, add the oil, tip in the peppers, then stir-fry for 3 mins until starting to soften. Add the chicken, then fry until golden, about 5 mins. Add the rice, beans and spring onions, then warm through.

I found this recipe very bland! I added ground coriander, paprika, a sliced onion, garlic some balsamic vinegar and some tomato puree and I still didn't find this spicy in the slightest. I had to spoon over some Discovery Chipotle chilli sauce in the end. I don't think I will be making this again!

This dish is very filling, I personally don't think it needs any extra ingredients. It takes quite a long time to prepare it, i.e. chop up everything, but it is definitely worth the effort.

Don't put tomatoes in to this, it really doesn't need them. I've made this 3 or 4 times now, and on the last two occasions added two handfuls of sultanas - it works!

I made this for me & my partner - was lovely - so simple to make - I added a tin of chopped tomatoes & as I couldn't find chilli flakes, I used 2 tsps of paprika - was lovely.

I literally just made this. I added mushrooms and a tin of tomatoes as per the suggestions above. What a corker of a recipe! Wonderful flavour, textures, and colours. And dead simple to make. Delicious!
