Chicken Chorizo Rice

Confession of a FoodBlogger ~
After that long hibernation... I must say that I had difficulties in getting my mojo started.
My train of thoughts seems reluctant to come out and play too. I think IT just wanted to hide away under the warm toastie duvet all the time....
The cold wintry days makes it even harder to keep these fingers warm while clicking away on the keyboard...had to 'sit on my hands' to warm them up after every few words typed.

One pot meal Chicken Chorizo Rice.

While waiting for mojo to return, fingers to warm up, grey matter and joints to thaw.... best I click on that PUBLISH button...set the wheel of 'mood' motion going

What can I say... 
I've been bitten by Mr LazyBug 

....and one pot meal it is for everyone
