Cook rice & marinate chicken
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Using a sharp knife, score the chicken skin all over. Add the chicken and marinade ingredients in a bowl. Toss to coat. Reserve a tablespoon of the sauce for the Chinese broccoli. Toss to coat then set aside. Using absorption method, cook rice. Place the rice in a small saucepan with 1.5 cups of cold water. Bring to the boil until liquid is completely absorbed. Cover pot with lid, remove from heat and set aside minimum 15 minutes.

Cook chicken
Transfer chicken to a lined roasting tray and place in oven on middle rack. Every 10 minutes turn and brush on extra marinade. Total cook time is 30 minutes or until cooked through.

Stir-fry vegetables
Crush the garlic. Finely slice the chilli. Cut the Chinese broccoli into 5cm pieces. Heat oil in a wok or large fry pan over high heat. Add Chinese broccoli, garlic, chilli (optional), reserved marinade and stir-fry. Cook for 3-4 minutes until leaves have wilted.
