This spicy, flavoursome family meal is sure to please everyone - and it's ready in just half an hour


  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • Mixed spices (¼ tsp paprika, ¼ tsp turmeric, ½ tsp ground ginger, 2 pinches cayenne pepper)
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 200g packet basmati rice
  • 450ml packet Knorr Simply Stock chicken stock, heated
  • Handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped, to serve

This family version of jambalaya isn't too hot, but if you like a little more kick, serve with a dash of hot pepper sauce.


  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and cook the onion, pepper and spices until soft.
  2. Add the chicken and cook for 5 mins. Pour in the rice and stir well to coat the grains. Add the hot chicken stock and season.
  3. Stir and bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 15-20 mins or until all the stock has been absorbed. Serve straight away with the chopped parsley stirred through.
