    1. 1
      Joint chicken and season well ( you can use just chicken breasts if you feel flush ).
    2. 2
      Cut the onion and red pepper ( remove pith etc.) into strips the same size.
    3. 3
      Drain / dry and cut sun dried tomatoes into 1cm pieces.
    4. 4
      Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a flameproof casserole dish ( with lid ). Add the chicken and brown all over. Take out and drain on kitchen paper.
    5. 5
      Add onions and peppers and brown - about 5 minutes.( More oil may be needed.).
    6. 6
      Add chopped garlic chorizo and sun dried tomatoes. Cook for about 1 minute until garlic is golden and the meat has changed colour slightly.
    7. 7
      Add rice - stir until grains have been coated in the oil.
    8. 8
      Add the stock, wine, tomato puree and cayenne pepper.

      Heat until a gentle simmer is achieved. Place chicken pieces on the top ( the rice should be submerged in the liquid.), sprinkle on the herbs and scatter the olives and orange wedges. Cover and cook on the gentlest possible heat for 50-60 minutes - or until the rice is cooked through.

      This recipe is from Delia Smith's Summer Collection Recipes. I bought the book just for this one recipe in 1990, and have been making many times for family and company, a nice tasty satisfying recipe. ( Delia puts in 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika in place of the cayenne. Otherwards everything else is exact)

      This was exactly what I was looking for! Brown rice, flavor, and spice! I added a bit more cayenne pepper because I like it spicy. It also looked so beautiful too!
