Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Fry the onion in 1 tbsp hot oil until translucent. Add the tomato purée, fry together briefly, stir in the rice and add the stock. Cover and simmer for around 20 minutes until cooked. Once cooked, add the beans to the rice and season to taste.

Meanwhile, season the chicken breasts with salt, ground black pepper and chilli powder. Fry in 2 tbsp hot oil in a non-stick frying pan for 6-8 minutes until golden brown. Cool slightly and slice or cut into pieces.

Mash the avocado well and season to taste with lemon juice and salt.
