Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Rinse the rice thoroughly, then leave to drain until needed. Melt half of the butter with the oil in a large pan or paella pan and fry the onion gently, stirring occasionally, for about 7 minutes until translucent, without browning.

  • STEP 2

    Now add the garlic and spices and stir fry for about 30 seconds, then add the chicken. Stir fry lightly for a few minutes on a high heat until the chicken loses its glassy look and is tinged brown (if you’re using chicken thighs, stir fry for 5 minutes more). Tip the drained rice into the pan, and stir fry for a final 30 seconds, until the rice is coated with the juices in the pan.

  • STEP 3

    Pour in the stock and stir in the beans. Season generously with salt and pepper and bring to the boil, then put the lid on tightly and turn the heat down as low as it will go (use a diffuser mat if you have one). Leave to simmer for 10-12 minutes, without stirring, until the stock is absorbed and the rice and chicken are tender. Check now and then towards the end of cooking, to make sure the rice hasn’t boiled dry. Stir in the dill and the remaining butter just before serving.
