Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya

I got this recipe from BBC Good Food and tweaked it slightly. I really enjoy it; it tastes great, and it is simple and quick to make.

I've put it serves two, but there are usually some leftover for lunch the next day when I make it for just the two of us.



2 servings
  1. 2 Chicken Breasts
  2. 1 Onion
  3. 1 Red Onion
  4. 1 Red Pepper
  5. 2 Garlic Cloves
  6. 1 Chopped Chilli (Depending on taste)
  7. 100 grams Chorizo
  8. 2 tbsp Cajun Spice (More depending on taste)
  9. 250 grams Rice
  10. 400 grams Chopped Tomato Tin
  11. 350 ml Chicken Stock
