Made this today. Tastes really good. I added chilli to the recipe to give it a kick. Also a lemon wedge and a drizzle of dark soy sauce to serve. Delicious. Thanks for sharing.

This is the best paella recipe I have ever used. I haven't had to adapt it in any way - it's perfect as it is!

Best paella I have ever made! The other recipes I've tried all turned into risotto. I also added smoked paprika and mushrooms a
nd half of a lemon. .

Great recipe! Absolutely loved it, I've made it for friends and family and it's been a winner. Even got my fussy brother to eat it even though he could see the vegetables! I suggest adding paprika as well it give it a more authentic taste and colour.

Only found this recipe online a month ago and have already made in 5 times! Excellent paella, and so easy to make. A++++

This recipe is amazing, I substituted the tomatoes for 3/4 tin of chopped tomatoes & added two tsp of Paprika.. I did need to also add more than 600 mls of stock to cook the rice through, maybe another 200 mls of water and it was perfect

Tried this recipe tonight for my husband and I. As per other comments I added paprika and just a little chilli flakes. It was very very good. Will definitely be having this again very soon.

I made this recipe tonight, adding an additional 3/4tsp of smoked paprika, and it really set it off.. Only thing I did slightly differently was fold the stock in bit by bit, but all in all a great starter paella.

Made this last night and it was delicious and there is loads left ready to be frozen. I might try the addition of paprika and a bit more garlic too. Yum.

I made this for me and my boyfriend! He absolutely loved it! It was quite easy to make too :) I used paprika as I didn't have any Turmeric. I would maybe use a bit less chicken next time as 400g isn't really needed! Maybe I would use some prawns and some more chorizo! I would definitely skin and de-seed the tomatoes, I know it's an effort but it makes the dish more authentic! It was delicious! Would definitely recommend! X

Delicious- left out the peppers and I think I used a bit less stock than suggested. Will make again soon!

Thanks for this recipe KESwales! Quick and simple to make, very tasty and comforting to eat. I halved the recipe to feed two of us and there was plenty with some left over to snack on. I made only one change - fried the chorizo slices with the onion and garlic to release its flavourful oil before adding the rice and stock.

I made this tonight for my husband and I. (I halved the recipe and added a bit) It took little time and effort to make, provides an easy way to get 4 different portions of vegetables down my husbands throat and tasted so good he suggested we make it next time we have guests. Great recipe, easily doubled or halved. Will certainly use it again! The only thing was that it took a lot longer than stated to get rid of the excess water so we ate it quite sticky - more like a risotto.
