Are you making this? 
2 chicken breasts; (cubed)
250 g chorizo; (sliced)
250 g king prawns
1 onion; (roughly chopped)
1 green pepper; (roughly chopped)
3 sticks celery; (roughly chopped)
1 can tomatoes; (400 g) chopped
250 ml rice; (1 cup)
1 tablespoon liquid chicken stock; (made up with boiling water to 1 ltr)
4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning; (see below for recipe)

Original recipe makes 6



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

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