1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil

50g butter
1 brown onion, thickly sliced

Step 1
Preheat oven to 200°C. Combine the chicken, turmeric, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, lemon juice and oil in a large bowl and gently toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Place in a roasting pan. Roast in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Combine the rice and stock in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 12 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat and set aside, covered, for 5 minutes. Add the lentils and use a fork to stir through.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until foaming. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes or until golden.

Spoon the rice mixture among serving plates and top with onion mixture. Combine the coriander, mint and red onion in a small bowl. Place the chicken on rice mixture and top with coriander salad. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, if desired.
