Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya

By | November 22, 2016

This was my first ever Jambalaya. I’d never even eaten one, never mind made it myself. If I’m being honest, I’m not sure I even knew what it was. Hunky Husband says it means “jumbled up”, which is accurate.

I’ve kind of looked at a few recipes and then made it up as I’ve gone along. It’s quite close to BBC good foods recipe, but with a lot more stock, I just found the rice was sticking to the pan, and not cooking with less.

I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to trying other combinations if anyone’s got any tips.

Bring to a simmer, cover, and leave to cook for around 30 minutes. Check around every 5 minutes, and give it a good stir. If it seems to be drying out too quickly, or the rice is sticking, add a little more water, and give it a good stir before re-covering.
