The most famous dish from New Orleans with a rich flavour
Dust the cubed chicken breasts with 2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning and fry for approximately 5 mins.
Add the chorizo, onion, green pepper and celery along with the remaining Cajun seasoning and cook for a further 5 - 10 mins until the vegetables have softened.
Add the chopped tomatoes, rice and chicken stock and gently simmer until the rice is cooked and has absorbed nearly all the stock, approximately 20 mins (add more water if necessary).
Add king prawns and continue cooking until they have turned pink (if using raw prawns) or heated through (if using pre-cooked prawns).
To make Cajun seasoning use: 5 parts paprika; 2 parts onion granules; 2 parts garlic granules; 2 parts dried oregano; 2 parts dried thyme; 1 part cayenne pepper; 1 part black pepper; 1 part white pepper; 1 part salt
LSKSK 1y agoMade this but left out the celery and used okra instead. Very tasty and easy to make.

Dnorris1751 2y agoLoves the recipe... Very tasty... I modified it a little by cooking the rice (jasmine rice) separately in chicken stock.. I also used linguica instead of charizo... Will def make again

Stevegf 3y agoPretty good when you've worked out the units - not sure if everyone gets metric, but 7kg of prawns and chorizo seems a bit excessive!
