Serves 4, Prep time takes 20mins, and takes approx 1hr to cook

6 x Skinless Chicken Fillets, sliced
200g x Chorizo, sliced
1 x Onion, chopped
4 x Garlic Cloves, crushed

A Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (1/2tsp of Mild Chilli Pepper)

First season your chicken fillet slices with salt, pepper and cayenne/chilli pepper. Brown the seasoned chicken along with the chorizo on a medium heat, this will take roughly 5mins. Then add the onion, garlic and celery and fry for 10 more minutes until the veg softens, add the red chilli and fry for a few more mins. Once this is done add the tomatoes and chicken stock and bring to the boil. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 25mins until the chicken is lovely and tender.

Once the chicken is tender add the rice, stir, cover and simmer for a further 15-20mins stirring occasionally, checking on the fluid levels. If it looks like it’s drying out add extra stock if needed.
