• Finely chop garlic. • In a medium saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil. • Cook garlic until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add basmati rice, the water and a pinch of salt, then bring to the boil. • Reduce heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, remove from heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes (the rice will finish cooking in its own steam, so don't peek).


• Meanwhile, chop snacking tomatoes. • Roughly chop baby spinach leaves. • Cut chicken breast into 2cm chunks. • Zest lime to get a good pinch, then slice into wedges. • In a medium bowl, combine snacking tomatoes, spinach, lime zest and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. • In a small bowl, combine Greek-style yoghurt and a squeeze of lime juice. Season to taste.


• SPICY! This is a mild spice blend, but use less if you’re sensitive to heat. In a second medium bowl, combine Tex-Mex spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil. Add chicken and toss to coat. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. • Cook chicken, tossing, until pink and starting to curl up, 5-6 minutes. In the last minute, add the honey and toss to coat. Remove from heat, then season.


• Divide garlic rice between bowls. • Top with the Mexican-spiced chicken, tomato salsa and lime yoghurt. • Serve with any remaining lime wedges. Enjoy!
