Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lbs skinless chicken pieces
  • 2 1/2 lbs skinless chicken thighs or drumsticks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 oz chorizo sausages cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 onion chopped

  • 2 cups long grain rice

Method

Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt. In large shallow Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken. Remove to plate.

Add chorizo, onion, garlic, pepper, turmeric and remaining salt to pan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes and stock, scraping up brown bits on bottom of pan. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Stir in rice; cook, covered, for 20 minutes. Stir in yellow pepper, peas and parsley; cook, covered, until rice is tender and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 5 minutes.
