This original recipe in BBC Easy Cook magazine caught my eye by its visually appealing colours.
I adapted this by utilizing some items that were in the freezer and had been for a short while due to not incorporating them straight away. Well, this recipe was perfect in including the king prawns and chicken I already had with only needing to go out and by some chorizo.
Ultimately this could easily be a store cupboard dinner, maybe substitute the king prawns and chorizo for some bacon or cooked sausage.
The dish itself was incredibly satisfying. Having a lovely soft fried egg cut open and ooze through the small grains of sweet rice and melt into the dish itself was tremendous.
The Cajun spice was not overpowering to the sweetness of the prawns and peas, with a light crunch of the peppers and onions.
I will most definitely keep this recipe close to the front of my recipe closet for another evening that requires a simple supper.
The original recipe had the use of pre-cooked rice. Thinking of it this way if you’re not too confident of doing braised rice this would easily be as good and also, save 10-12 minutes of cooking time.
So here it is, Cajun, prawn, chicken and chorizo rice. A colourful and taste sensation that the whole family or even friends would enjoy.
