Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya

This is one of my favorite recipes that I make over and over again and usually lasts me for a week! From BBC GoodFood:
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 75g chorizo (I often use the entire chorizo because I love it), sliced
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 250g long grain rice
  • 400g can plum tomato
  • 350ml chicken stock (I often tend to need more than this and add some white wine as well)

 
Method:
  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan with a lid and brown 2 chopped chicken breasts for 5-8 mins until golden.
  2. Remove and set aside. Tip in the 1 diced onion and cook for 3-4 mins until soft.
  3. Add 1 thinly sliced red pepper, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 75g sliced chorizo and 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning, and cook for 5 mins more.
  4. Stir the chicken back in with 250g long grain rice, add the 400g can of tomatoes and 350ml chicken stock. Cover and simmer for 20-25 mins until the rice is tender (This often takes about an hour for me and much more stock or wine)
