  2. Add the chopped chicken fillet pieces, ensure that they are cooked thoroughly without browning on the outside.
  3. Add the chorizo and fry until it releases its oils. Stir in the turmeric and rice until coated by the oils, then pour in the stock.
  4. Bring the ingredients to the boil, then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
