15 minPrep



  • 1 Pkg Daring Plant Chicken
  • 1.5 tbsp Chipotle Paste
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 8¾ oz Pineapple
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 2 Limes
  • ¾ oz Fresh Cilantro
  • 17¾ oz Microwave Rice
  • 2 Avocados
  • 2½ oz Tomatillo Salsa
  • Olive Oil

Step 1

Heat the oven to 375°F. Add the chipotle and cumin to a baking tray. Grate the garlic in, season generously with salt and mix together. Toss the Daring Plant Chicken through the marinade with a drizzle of olive oil. Arrange the chicken evenly and bake for 7-8 mins .

Step 2

Meanwhile, trim and slice the pineapple into large dice (2cm chunks). Thinly slice the onion. Put the onion slices into a bowl and squeeze the juice of 1 lime over them. Season with salt and set aside to pickle. Pick half the cilantro leaves and finely mince the rest. Dice the avocado into even-sized cubes.

Step 3

Once the chicken is cooked, add the pineapple to the tray, switch the oven setting to broil and cook until the pineapple and chicken start to char (approx 3 minutes). Keep an eye on it.

Step 4

Reheat the rice and stir the minced coriander and zest of half a lime through. Season with salt.

Step 5

Share the rice between bowls, then top with the chicken and pineapple, avocado, pickled onions, store-bought tomatillo salsa and remaining coriander leaves.
