Chicken and chorizo jambalaya

This cajun-inspired, one pot wonder makes use of store cupboard ingredients and frozen chorizo, which is what gives the sauce such a rich colour. The spices are warming, rather than hot, so it's kid-friendly as well.

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and brown the chicken all over for 3-4 minutes until lightly golden. Remove and set aside.

  2. Add the chorizo and cook for 4-5 minutes over a medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until it releases its oils and starts to crisp.

  3. Toss in the onions and sauté gently for about 10-15 minutes until softened and starting to colour.

  4. Stir in the peppers, garlic, celery salt, smoked paprika and dried herbs and cook for 2 minutes more or until fragrant.

  5. Add the brown basmati rice with the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock and bay leaf and bring to the boil. Cover and leave to simmer for 20 minutes.

  6. Tip the chicken back into the pan and cook, covered, for 10-15 minutes until the rice is tender and almost all the liquid has been absorbed.

  7. Remove from the heat, season to taste, leave to sit with the lid on for 5 minutes.

  8. Fluff up the rice with a fork and discard the bay leaf. Divide the jambalaya between bowls and top with a scattering of coriander and a drizzle of hot sauce, if desired, before serving.
