On 15th April 2016, This was Dinner…
I had some paella rice in the cupboard and some chicken thighs in the freezer so it made sense to take inspiration from this BBC Good Food recipe in the March edition. Apart from the chorizo, most things are store cupboard anyway so I didn’t need to pick anything else up.
- Cut some chicken thighs into pieces
- Thickly slice a chorizo
- Prepare some chicken stock
- Finely slice a large onion
- Finely chop a garlic clove
- Chop some parsley
- Get saffron, paprika, turmeric, paella rice, frozen peas, lemon, oil & seasoning ready
Throw it together…
Heat some oil in a pan and brown the chicken. Remove and set aside.
Add the chorizo and cook until it starts to release oil. Remove and set aside with the chicken.
Add the onion and cook until softened. Then add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Add the spices and stir then add the rice and stir again.
Pour in the stock and bring to the boil then add the chicken and chorizo and cook for around 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the peas and cook for a few more minutes. Check the seasoning.
Sprinkle with the parsley.
Dish it up…
Serve with a squeeze of lemon.
I was going to put some cooked prawns in but forgot to get them out of the freezer in the morning.
