Step 1

Chop all your veg, keep in separate piles. Make up your stock and add the worcester sauce to it.

Chop up the sausage (or chorizo) and chicken and fry in oil for about 3-5 minutes, or until the chicken is browned.

Step 3

Put the chicken and sausage to the side on a plate

Step 4

Fry the onion in a little oil for about 2 minutes. Add in the garlic and mushrooms / peppers / whatever else you have for another 3-5 minutes

Step 5

throw your cup of rice in and stir it around for about 30 seconds.

Step 6

Add the chicken stock, and spices. Add a can of chopped tomatoes.

Step 7

Add back in the sausage and chicken. Turn the hob right down to simmer and leave the rice to absorb the liquid for about 20-25 minutes.


If you don't have the tomatoes, leave em out. This recipe is very flexible.
