  1. For the salsa, combine all the ingredients, mix well and leave to one side.

  2. Prepare the spiced chicken: Slice the chicken thighs as thinly as possible and place in a bowl. Add the cumin and paprika and then mix. Add the oil to a large frying pan and heat on a medium to high heat. Add the chicken and leave for 2 minutes until one side is crispy and golden, then turn and cook for another minute. Ensure the chicken is cooked through, then finish with a squeeze of lime and season with salt and pepper. Leave to cool.

  4. Heat the rice to packet instructions.
