What you need:

  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 8 skinless chicken thighs
  • scant 1 cup (200g) jasmine rice
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/3 cup (200ml) white wine
  • 2 heaped cups (500ml) chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp. dried cranberries

For the Sauce:
• 3 tbsp. soy sauce
• 2 tbsp. of rice vinegar
• 1 tbsp. of peanut butter • 1 tsp. of chili flakes
• 1 tsp. of honey
• 1 tsp. of sesame oil

What you need to do:

Heat the oven to 375F (190C). Heat the oil in a large pan.

Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and fry for 5 minutes each side until golden brown, then take off the heat and transfer onto a plate.

Pour out most of the fat from the pan, leaving about 1 tbsp in the pan.

Add into the pan the peeled and sliced garlic and the spring onion, fry for 1 minute.

Add uncooked rice and fry again for about 1 minute. Pour in the wine and cook for a further 2 minutes until most of the liquid evaporates.

Next, add all ingredients of hoisin sauce, hot stock, and cranberries, bring to a boil.

Transfer the rice into an over-proof dish and place the chicken thighs in the center. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Once cooked, divide onto 4 plates and serve, or store in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.
