DIRECTIONS

  • Joint chicken and season well ( you can use just chicken breasts if you feel flush ).
  • Cut the onion and red pepper ( remove pith etc.) into strips the same size.
  • Drain / dry and cut sun dried tomatoes into 1cm pieces.
  • 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.
  • Add onions and peppers and brown - about 5 minutes.( More oil may be needed.).
  • Add chopped garlic chorizo and sun dried tomatoes. Cook for about 1 minute until garlic is golden and the meat has changed colour slightly.
  • Add rice - stir until grains have been coated in the oil.
  • 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 meal can be prepared in advance up to Stage 9.
