What You Need To Make Chicken Chorizo Stew In A Ninja Foodi

This recipe was made in the pressure cooker function of the Ninja Foodi 9-in-1 but it could be made in any pressure cooker or multi-cooker.

Ninja Foodi chicken chorizo ingredients

The amounts below served 4 people, you can decrease or increase the ingredients depending on how many people you are serving.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 750g – 1kg boneless chicken thighs
  • 600ml chicken stock
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 350g long-grain rice, rinsed
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 150g chorizo, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped

Start by making up the chicken stock (I added 1 stock pot/cube to 600ml of boiling water) and stir in the turmeric.

Switch the Ninja Foodi on and select the saute mode. Add the olive oil (or oil of your choice) and leave it to heat up.

Add the chopped onions, peppers, crushed garlic and chorizo and saute them for a few minutes.

Be careful to not allow any of the ingredients to burn on the bottom – if any do, use some of the hot stock to deglaze the base. Simply pour a small amount of the stock into the pot and then use a wooden or plastic spatula to scrape away any stuck or burnt on ingredients.

Switch the saute function off and add the remaining ingredients – the chicken, rice and remaining stock. Stir everything together before placing the pressure cooker lid on the Ninja Foodi.

Select the pressure cooker function and set it on ‘high’ and the time at 8 minutes.

At the end of the cooking time leave the pressure cooker to naturally release for 10 minutes before performing a quick release.

Chicken and Chorizo Stew is a delicious all in one pot meal - and it's even easier to make in the pressure cooker function of a Ninja Foodi!

Ingredients

  • 600ml chicken stock
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 150g chorizo, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 750g – 1kg boneless chicken thighs
  • 350g long-grain rice, rinsed

Instructions

  1. Make up the chicken stock by dissolving 1 chicken stock cube or pot in 600ml boiling water. Add the ground turmeric to the chicken stock and set it to one side.
  2. Switch the Ninja Foodi on and into saute mode. Add the olive oil (or oil of your choice) and leave it to heat up for about 1 minute. Add the chopped onion, crushed garlic, chopped peppers and diced chorizo. Saute the ingredients for a few minutes until they begin to soften.
  3. If any of the ingredients stick to the base of the Ninja Foodi bowl use a little bit of the hot stock to deglaze the pot.
  4. Switch the saute function off and add the remaining ingredients - the chicken and the hot stock.
  5. Place the pressure cooker lid on the Ninja Foodi and remember to put it into the seal position.
  6. Set the Ninja Foodi to the pressure cooker function (on high) and set the timer to 8 minutes. The Ninja Foodi should take around 10 minutes to come to pressure.
  7. At the end of the pressure cooking time leave the Ninja Foodi for 10 minutes before performing a quick release. The stew might need a little stir around and you can optionally shred or cut up some of the chicken thighs.
