Chicken and chorizo jambalaya
This is a very popular and easy dish and the chorizo sausage and Cajun seasonings gives it that lovely “complex” kick. Another great one from the BBC GoodFood Network.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 chicken breasts or thighs chopped
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, thinly sliced (capsicum)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3 oz chorizo, sliced. (I like the dried Spanish one)
1 tbsp Cajun seasoning. (You should be able to find this in your local supermarket, or on Amazon.com)
1/2 lb long grain rice
14.5 oz can chopped plum tomatoes
1 1/2 cups chicken stock.
Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large frying pan with a lid and brown the chicken for 5 to 8 minutes until golden.
Remove and set aside. Tip in the onion and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until soft. Then add the pepper, garlic, chorizo, and Cajun seasoning, and cook for 45 minutes more.
Stir the chicken back in with the rice, add the tomatoes and stock.
Cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until the rice is tender.
