Chicken & Chorizo Paella

I came across this on Minimins but couldn’t find it again to let you know the author. This is really yummy and would be great with prawns and mussels. Experiment with different vegetables, meats and seafood to get your perfect combination.

Serves 2

Extra Easy – Approx 5.5 syns per portion (dependent on the brand of Chorizo using)

2 Chicken fillets, sliced and seasoned
50g Chorizo ring, sliced (approx 11 syns)
1 large Red Onion, diced
1 Red or Yellow Pepper, sliced
2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
150g Paella rice
Handful of Frozen Peas
1pt Chicken Stock
Pinch of Saffron
Dried Herbs
Chicken Seasoning (or something similar)
Salt and Black Pepper

1. Add the saffron to the hot chicken stock and leave to infuse. Put the raw chicken in a bowl and coat with chicken seasoning, the garlic and mixed herbs.
2. Meanwhile, fry the onion and red pepper in a deep frying pan sprayed with frylight until soft.
3. Add the garlic and chicken and fry until the chicken is sealed.
4. Add the chorizo and rice and fry until the rice has been mixed through.
5. Add the stock, saffron, herbs and peas and season.
6. Stir everything through and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and leave for 20 minutes or until the stock has been absorbed and the rice is cooked through. Do not stir the mixture once it is simmering!
