Kitchen Adventures : Quick Chicken Biryani

Another quick the kids need feeding meal from me this week.

This one uses a storecupboard staple of mine - tilda microwave kids rice. These are fab, quick, packed with veg and a small portion. I buy them most weeks as a perfect quick meal for the kids.

I stumbled across this recipe on the Tilda website and used this for the inspiration for super quick meal.

1 chicken breast cut into chunks best size for your kids.
1tsp mild curry powder
1tbsp of creme fraiche
1 innocent tube of mangos and pineapples
1 pack of tilda rice - I used the sunshine mix

Fry the chicken until sealed and starting to golden. While frying mix together the creme fraiche, curry powder and Innocent tube. Add to the chicken in a pan, coat and cook until bubbling. Add the rice straight into the pan and stir until all combined.

Leave to cook away until chicken and rice are cooked through. Serve straight away.


The addition of the Innocent tube gives a lovely sweetness to the dish for the kids - plus added bonus of the extra fruit in the dish.

Both kids really enjoyed it. This was enough for my 4 year old and my 8 month old to share.

Think I will experimenting more with these rice packs!
