Rinse rice until water runs clear. Add rice and 2 cups water to a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce to simmer, and cover. Simmer for 25 minutes then remove from heat, covered, and let stand for 10-15 mins before fluffing with a fork.

Once rice has been simmering for about 5 minutes, heat oil in a large non-stick pan, add leek and garlic. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until leeks are soft.

Add chicken and mustard to the pan, cook for around 5 minutes, allowing the chicken to lightly brown all over.

Add the mushrooms to the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add peas and 1/2 cup water and cook for 8-10 minutes over a low heat until chicken is cooked through.

Add cream and cook for another minute, then serve with rice. Garnish with parsley.

Tip: Try Ceres Organics Brown Basmati Rice as an alternative to black rice.
