To prepare the quick-pickled onion, combine vinegar, sugar and onion in a bowl, season to taste and toss to combine. Set aside to pickle while you prepare the rest of the dish.


Combine spices and 1 tsp sea salt in a small bowl, then use to generously season chicken all over to taste. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add chicken and pan-fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, turn and brown remaining side. Transfer to oven for 4-5 minutes to cook through, then set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

Thickly slice the chicken, arrange on top of rice, then crumble over feta. Drain pickled onions and scatter over each bowl, scatter with coriander sprigs and serve.

NOTE: To make 4 cups of brown rice you’ll need to start with approximately 1½ cups raw brown rice.
