For the next day we had the dish for lunch as leftovers. We added the leftover rice into the chicken sauce and re-heated. To serve we added a bed of spinach, placed the sauce/rice mixture ontop and then added some fresh coriander, yoghurt and or cream, chilli flakes and Broth of Life Chicken Bone Broth.
