• Boil the kettle. Half-fill a medium saucepan with boiling water. • Add basmati rice and a good pinch of salt and cook, uncovered, over a high heat until tender, 12 minutes. • Drain and return rice to the saucepan. Add the butter and stir to combine.
• While the rice is cooking, heat a large frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. • When oil is hot, cook diced chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. • Meanwhile, finely chop garlic. Roughly chop carrot. Drain baby corn spears (see ingredients).
• Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. • Cook carrot until slightly tender, 3-4 minutes. Add baby corn spears and cook for a further 3-4 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium, then add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Return chicken and any resting juices to the pan, then add honey-soy sauce and a splash of water and cook until slightly thickened, 1 minute. Add baby spinach leaves, and stir to combine.
TIP: Add a dash of water to the pan to help speed up the cooking process.
• Divide rapid butter rice between bowls. • Top with honey-soy chicken and veggie stir-fry. • Tear over coriander and garnish with crispy shallots to serve.
