When your fish or chicken is cooked, remove from oven, heat oil in pan and brown fish or meat off for a few minutes. Either break it up in pan or remove and slice then return to pan.

Add the onions, peppers, asparagus & peas to the pan.

By now the rice should be cooked, so add the rice pan and over a low heat, stir to combine. Season with salt & pepper.

The oil from the onions mixture should coat the rice, if not, then add a drizzle more of oil and stir to mix it throughout.

Sprinkle with a little parmesan & enjoy.

This recipe uses frozen fish or chicken breasts, which are quick & convenient, it also uses frozen peas, and if you always have staples like onion, garlic & chilli in your cupboards then it leaves little to buy to make this filling dish.
