SW recipe: Butterflied chicken with hammy rice

Ready in 35 minutes

Serves 4


200g dried basmati or wild rice
400g sugar snap peas, trimmed
4 large skinless and boneless chicken breasts
120g canned lean ham, cut into small chunks
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
Low-calorie cooking spray


Cook the rice according to the pack instructions, adding the sugar snaps for the last 2-3 minutes.

Put a chicken breast on a chopping board and rest your hand flat on top of it. Use a sharp knife to slice into the thicker edge, taking care not to cut all the way through.

Open the chicken breast out, cover with cling film and bash it with a rolling pin to flatten slightly — you’re aiming for an even thickness. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts and season.

Place a non-stick griddle pan or frying pan over a high heat. Spray the chicken with low-calorie cooking spray and fry for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through, turning halfway. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Add the ham to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, tossing occasionally.

Drain the rice and sugar snaps, stir in the ham and sherry vinegar and season to taste. Divide between plates and serve with the chicken.
