Sticky Chicken And Rice Bake Instructions

via From The Pantry To The Table

Combine soy sauce, honey, lemon rind and juice, sesame oil and then 1/2 the garlic in a jug.

Place chicken in a large, shallow glass or ceramic dish, then pour the marinade over the chicken. Turn to coat and then cover. Refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight, turning chicken occasionally.

Preheat oven to 350F/325F convection or 180C/160C fan-forced.

Remove chicken from marinade then pat dry with a paper towel. Heat some oil in a large 11-inch 30cm round (12-cup-capacity) flameproof, ovenproof dish over medium heat.

Cook chicken, turning, for 3 minutes or until browned all over, then transfer to a plate.

Add onion to dish. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes then add the carrot. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until just starting to soften, then add the ginger and remaining garlic.

Continue to cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Stir in stock and remaining marinade.

Return chicken to the dish and then cover it with a lid or tightly with foil to prevent steam escaping. Bring it to a boil.

Carefully transfer the dish to the oven and then bake for 40 minutes.

Remove the lid or foil then transfer chicken to a plate. Stir in rice. Cover plate and then bake for a further 10 minutes.

Stir in peas, corn, and Capsicum. Return chicken to the dish.

Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is browned and cooked through and rice is tender too.

Add more stock if necessary. Then serve topped with green onion, chili, and coriander. Enjoy!
