A firm favourite in our house
This recipe is a regular favourite here so my husband tells me just incase I could ever possibly forget! Its the perfect pick me up at this time of year especially if you have a cold or are in just need of being warmed up – like a big cosy hug and very low on washing up!
Chicken and Chorizo one pot
3 chicken breasts diced
1 large onion chopped
100g chorizo sliced
2 red or orange peppers sliced
a good sprinkling of cayenne pepper
a good sprinkling of smoked paprika
150ml white wine (optional if not just increase stock)
250g long grain rice
400g tin of tomatoes
450ml chicken stock
Look out a hob friendly casserole dish or a large sauce pan and drizzle with oil placing on a medium heat. Add the chicken and fry for 5 mins until just nearly cooked then remove from the pan.
Add the onions, chorizo and peppers cooking until just softened through. Add the chicken followed by the spices and wine cooking for a further 5 mins.
Once the five minutes are up add the rice tomatoes and stock, cover and cook for 20 – 25 minutes until the rice is cooked through stirring occasionally. (you may need to add a touch more water towards the end)
Enjoy served hot with a dollop of creme fraiche on top. Also superb served cold on a bed of salad – thats lunch sorted for tomorrow! 🙂
