Get Prepped
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve the tomatoes. Halve the lemon.
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
Roast the Veg
  • Pop the pepper onto a lined baking tray and drizzle with oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  • Roast on the top shelf of your oven until charred and soft, 15-20 mins.
  • Halfway through cooking, add the tomatoes to the tray and pop back into the oven for the remaining time. 
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and cover to keep warm.
Fry the Chicken and Chorizo
  • While the veg roasts, place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the diced chicken and chorizo. IMPORTANT: Wash hands after handling raw meat.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until browned, 4-6 mins. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to vacuum packing we use to keep it fresh. It will still taste delicious once cooked!

Add the Rice
  • Add the garlic and paprika to the pan and cook for 1 min.
  • Stir in the rice and cook for 1 min.
  • Pour in 500ml water (double for 4p) along with the stock powder.
  • Cover with a lid and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 mins.
Finishing Touches
  • Once cooked, remove from the heat and set aside (still covered) for another 10 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once ready, fluff up the rice with a fork.
  • Add the roasted pepper and tomatoes to the pan. 
  • Stir through the juice of half the lemon (double for 4p) and half the parsley.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel it's too dry.

Garnish and Serve
  • Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining parsley.
  • Cut any remaining lemon into wedges and serve on the side.
  • Place the pan on the table and let everyone help themselves.
