2. Wash callaloo in salted wa­ter and cut up. Put on a pot with wa­ter and salt, bring to boil and blanch callaloo. 3. Cook rice and cool down. 4. Cook callaloo with sea­son­ing, then add heavy cream and stir in for 5 min­utes.

6. Take chicken from fridge and lay skin side down, place 1 oz of rice and callaloo mix­ture in the cen­tre of the chicken, ap­ply egg wash to the edge of chicken, fold chicken, pulling back un­til it feels firm un­der hand, then wrap un­til a cylin­der shape is formed, wrap into alu­minium foil and twist in op­po­site di­rec­tion.
