Method

  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan.
  2. Add finely chopped onion and garlic, and cook for a few minutes to soften.
  3. Cut chicken fillet into strips and add to onion.
  4. Turn heat up slightly and brown chicken pieces all over.
  5. Once chicken is browned, stir in rice and mix in well. Reduce heat and cook, stirring, for just a couple more minutes. Add the thyme.
  6. Keep a jug of hot stock beside you; pour this in, a little at a time, stirring gently all the time.
  7. Wait until each addition of stock has been absorbed before adding more. This will take around 15 minutes.
  8. After this time, add the peas and allow to simmer for 2-3 more minutes.
  9. Stir in Parmesan just before serving.
