  • 500ml Chicken Liquid Stock
  • 12 large raw green prawns, peeled with tail left on

  • 200g green beans, sliced into 1/2 cm rounds
  • 1 tablespoons Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Flat leaf parsley to garnish

  1. Heat oil over a medium heat in a large saucepan. Cook the onion for 2 minutes with a touch of sea salt, then add in the beans, rice mix and stock. Bring up to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the chicken and stir through the rice to warm. Place the prawns and mussels on the rice and gently nestle them into the rice. Cover with a lid and leave on a gentle simmer for 5 minutes, or until the prawns have cooked through and the mussels have opened.
