    twissis's Note:

    From the *Best Ever Chicken* cookbook edited by Linda Fraser & per the intro -- "The perfect way to use up leftover cold meats, this spicy dish is a fast & fortifying meal for a hungry family." A cook's note attached to the recipe further states "You can also add cooked ham (or pork), smoked cod (or haddock) & fresh shellfish to this dish." (10-15 min time was allowed for ingredient prep. Cooking time includes 5 min standing prior to serving). *Enjoy* !

      What a great way to use leftovers! I madre this in my rice cooker, which worked beautifully. The only change I wade was to use a portuguese red pepper paste instead of tomato puree, which added a nice smokey flavor to the dish. Made for ZWT8

      Twissis this is my kind of recipe! Fast and easy on a busy weeknight but very delicious! I loved the spice in this recipe, and believe it or not it was only my second time using Chorizo in my life and I just love it even more! Thanks I wouldn't change anything about this one and will make again.
