# 82 Fridays recipes: Jambalaya

We tried this dish for the 1st time last Sunday and loved it. Here's the recipe if you want to try it too.

Chicken thighs or drumsticks
A few slices of chorizo
1 onion chopped
1 garlic clove crushed
2 celery sticks sliced
1/2 green pepper sliced
Hot chicken stock (I dissolved one chicken stock cube in a cup of hot water)
1/2 can of chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup of rice
Fresh thyme chopped

Pour a little olive oil into a frying pan and fry the chorizo and the chicken until the meat is slightly golden in colour on all sides. Transfer to a plate leaving the fat in the pan.

Cook the onion in the frying pan for a couple of minutes before adding the celery, the garlic and the pepper. Let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes stirring occasionally and then add the chicken.

Stir in the rice and pour over the hot chicken stock. Add the chopped tomatoes, the chopped fresh thyme and stir. Cover and simmer until the rice is cooked stirring occasionally and adding more stock if necessary.
