Chicken & Prawn Jambalaya

by Pasta Lover

by Pasta LoverViewed 2554 times


    Method

    1. 1. Cook the rice in plenty of boiling water until tender, about 12 minutes.

    2. 2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok and sauté the chicken for about 3-4 minutes, until browned. Add the celery, onion, green pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, until softened.

    3. 3. Add the Cajun seasoning and thyme. Cook gently, stirring occasionally, for a further 5 minutes.

    4. 4. Drain the rice thoroughly, then add it to the frying pan with the DOLMIO Spicy Pepperoni & Tomato Stir-in Sauce, stirring well to combine. Add the prawns and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until thoroughly heated, then serve.

    Tips

    If you can’t find Cajun seasoning, use 1 tsp of chilli powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper, or add according to taste. Cool any leftovers quickly and keep covered and refrigerated. Use the next day – either thoroughly re-heated, or eaten cold for a packed lunch.

      For the tomato sauce you could make my basic tomato sauce recipe http://www.mydish.co.uk/recipe/7029/easy_budget_tomato_sauce but add some sliced pepperoni with the frying onions and a 1/2 tsp of chilli powder at the end.

        I have made this recipe 4 or 5 times now, we love it. Once I ran out of hot pepper sauce so I added crushed chillies whilst it was cooking the rice - wow. great recipe. You can even leave out the sausage part - its just as good !
