Corn Chicken and Rice - Celeb Feasts

19 February


Recipe courtesy of Zola Nene.


1 Tablespoons Ground cumin

2 Tablespoons Ground coriander

2 Teaspoons skinless chicken thighs, Cayenne pepper

8 Skinless chicken thighs (Bone in)

Salt and pepper

1 Onion (Sliced)

2 Garlic cloves (Chopped)

1 Teaspoon Chilli flakes

1 Tin Chopped tomatoes

2 Teaspoons Huletts white sugar

2 Cups Spekko parboiled rice

125 ml Nederburg Winemaster’s Sauvignon Blanc

375 ml Chicken stock

1 Cup Cooked corn kernels

15 Grams Parsley


Heat the olive oil in a large shallow pan with a lid. 

Mix together the cumin, coriander and cayenne, then rub all over the chicken to coat. 

Brown the chicken thighs in the oil, then remove from the pan and set aside. 

In the same pan, fry the onion until softened, then add any remaining spice mix, the garlic, chilli flakes, tomatoes and sugar 

Add the rice, season, then stir in the wine and allow to reduce. Nestle the chicken onto the rice, then cover with a lid and simmer gently on low heat for 30 minutes, or until the rice has absorbed all the liquid and the chicken is cooked through. 

Stir in the corn, then sprinkle with the parsley before serving.
