Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
105g pepitas
1 teaspoon peanut oil
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon raw caster sugar
1kg chicken wings
1 tablespoon ghee
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
200g basmati rice, washed
250ml chicken stock
250ml milk
sea salt
1 bunch coriander leaves, chopped
lime juice, to taste
favourite hot sauce, to taste

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Combine the pepitas, oil, cayenne pepper, salt and sugar in a bowl then spread out the mixture on a baking tray. Roast for 10–15 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken wings with a good pinch of salt and roast in the oven in a roasting tin for 30 minutes, or until they are nicely browned and the chicken is cooked through. Let the wings cool then shred the meat with a fork. Discard the bones.
  4. Melt the ghee in a frying pan over a low heat. Fry the garlic for 1–2 minutes, or until softened. Add the basmati rice and stir well to coat the rice in the ghee. Add the stock and the milk and cover, with the lid ajar, and bring to the boil. Once boiling, cook for 2–3 minutes, then cover completely with the lid and turn off the heat. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  5. Fold half the pepita mixture and a good pinch of sea salt through the rice then top with the shredded chicken, the coriander and the remaining pepita mixture. Give it a good squeeze of lime and a hit of your favourite hot sauce and serve.
