Step 1

In a large saucepan, fry the onions, celery, pepper, garlic and chilli in the margarine for 5 minutes. Add the Cajun seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and smoked paprika, and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the rice, stir for 1 minute, and add the tomatoes and chicken stock. Cook on a medium heat, stirring often, for 15 minutes. Add the sausages and chicken, and cook for a further 10 minutes stirring often. Season to taste and serve!

Feel free to swap ingredients around if you want, this recipe is also very nice with green pepper instead of red- and if you like them, this dish is very nice with a handful of prawns added.
