Budget Busters

Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya


If, after the latest austerity budget, you are feeling the squeeze even more than Michael Noonan's top trouser button, here are a few ideas to produce low-cost nutritious meals for your family.  These recipes are designed to decrease cooking time (hopefully saving on those utility bills) whilst providing a balanced meal that won't break the bank... oh, that's right, they're already broken!

The first is my Pasta Amatriciana, a classic Italian sauce made with tomatoes, chillies and bacon that is traditionally served with spaghetti.  The second is my Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya.  This is a mildly spicy cajun-style stew with rice, peppers, tomatoes and spices... a great way to warm up the family when you have to turn the heat down.  All the ingredients for these dishes can be found in Lidl at a low price.  The preparation uses as little kitchen equipment as possible so, if you are a student or just dodging on the washing up, this also saves you another few pence.  It all adds up!
