Chicken & Chorizo Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a dish of rice which can be made with prawns, chicken, smoked sausage and vegetables. In our case, chicken and chorizo. Jambalaya is a dish from Louisiana  with Spanish and French influence. It’s a one pot dish so this will save on the washing up after!

Here’s what you’ll need:


400g can chopped tomato

350ml chicken stock

250g long grain rice

75g chorizo, sliced

4 tbsp Cajun seasoning

4 chicken breast, chopped

2 red peppers, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced


  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan with a lid and brown the chicken for 5-8 mins until golden. Remove and set aside.

  • Tip in the onion, the pepper, garlic, chorizo and Cajun seasoning, and cook for 5 minutes.

  • Stir the chicken back in with the rice, add the stock and chopped tinned tomatoes.

  • Add salt to taste, cover and simmer for 20-25 mins until the rice is tender.

  • I love a one pot dish, don’t you?

Enjoy! This dish is full of flavour!
