Ingredients

1tbsp oil
8 chicken pieces or 1 whole chicken, jointed
1 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped into large chunks
3 garlic cloves, crushed
225g chorizo, skinned and sliced
1 tbsp tomato purée
1 tbsp thyme leaf, chopped
150ml white wine
850ml chicken stock
400g long grain rice
2 tbsp chopped parsley

Method

STEP 1

Brown the chicken on all sides in hot oil, working in batches if necessary, in a large flameproof casserole dish. Take out of the serving dish and set aside.

STEP 2

Turn the heat down, throw in the onions and peppers, and let them simmer for 10 minutes, or until they’re nice and tender. When the chorizo has released some of its oils into the casserole, add the garlic and simmer for another 2 minutes. Cook for a further minute after adding the tomato paste.

STEP 3

Add the chicken back into the casserole, along with the thyme, wine, and stock. Achieve a boil in the liquid, then cover the dish with a lid that fits tightly, and reduce the heat. Set the timer for 30 minutes and cook.

STEP 4

Put the rice in and mix it all together. The rice is done when it has absorbed most of the cooking liquid and is tender, which usually takes about 15 minutes more of cooking time with the lid on and over low heat. Take the dish off the stove and let it rest for 10 minutes to soak up any excess liquid. The dish is finished with a sprinkle of parsley and a seasoning of your choosing.
