This is one of my all time favourites and is something you throw together and forget about if you are having a 'snap' dinner party. When I was an OC, this was a staple back up on inviting some YOs over at last minute. Jambalaya: Ingredients (per person): 50g Chorizo Sausage (diced) 100g Chicken thighs (boneless, skinless and diced) Onion (diced finely) 3 stalks of celery (diced) 1/2 Green Pepper (Diced) 1/2 Red Pepper (diced) 100g per person of Abborio (Risotto) Rice 100ml white wine per person 100ml water per person Cajun Seasoning Seasoning Method: Do all of your mise-en-place first, the beginning is quick. In a stock pot, dry fry the chorizo, the oil will naturally come out and fry the sausage. Remove the sausage once cooked but retain the oil, then fry the chicken until cooked, if necessary add only the lightest amount of olive oil - again reserve. In the remaining juices sweat the onion, celery and peppers until soft but retain some crunch. Add the rice, meats and dust with cajun seasoning and season the pot, continue to fry for 1 minute. Add the wine and the water, season again. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally, add more water if necessary but you are looking for a sticky rice consistency. It will be ready in approx 25 minutes. I have cooked this on the BBQ as a side dish to other flesh. I suggest a light Pinot Grigio or indeed if you are in Germany, get a nice Walter J Oster Halbtrocken Auslese. Enjoy! Edited for clarity and grammar!!
