Method

  1. Put the saffron in a small bowl and pour over 2 tbsp boiling water. Set aside to infuse. Heat the oil in a large, wide pan, add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Tip in the onion and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add bay leaves and peppers and cook 4-5 minutes more. Stir in peas and broad beans and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and put aside.
  3. Pour wine into a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Tip in mussels, cover and cook for 3-5 minutes until mussels open. Discard any that remain closed. Drain over a bowl to catch the liquid. Allow to settle for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the mussel liquid into the pan with the chicken and veg. Add saffron and chicken stock then cool and chill everything until ready to serve. You can prepare this up to 3 hours ahead.
  5. To serve, cook the tagliatelle as pack instructions. Reheat chicken and simmer for 2 minutes. Add prawns, cook for 1 minute, add cream and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Add mussels, parsley and seasoning. Toss to heat through. Drain tagliatelle and add to the sauce. Serve with lemon wedges and fresh crusty bread.

Really delicious meal, and very easy to make! I made it for a dinner party last night and it went down a storm! I am so pleased I will definitely be making it again. I was a bit worried that the sauce would be too thin, but as soon as you add the cream, the consistency is perfect. You do need to include the saffron, because it adds a very delicate flavour and gives the dish a lovely rich colour. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a pinch of chilli flakes (which gave it a bit of warmth) and a handful of black olives (which looked & tasted really nice!). I also served with garlic bread which complemented it perfectly. I would definitely recommend!

Super Dish. I changed it though.

I took out the broad beans and pepper.
I didnt use seafood just chicken.
You dont need to use saffron the other tastes take it away
I added a some mustard and you do need to add the wine!

I loved it and its so easy to make!

I've made this recipe a few times and it's always gone down a storm! Found it really easy to make, and think it should be marked down from Moderately Easy to Easy. I put a chili into it too to give it a little kick.

I made it as per the receipe and it was fantastic. I don´t usually use cream but I really enjoyed it. I put a couple of chilli´s in as my guests are chilli lovers. It was easy to do and what was good about it is that you could prepare it all before and the flavour was still was still good.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could use instead of white wine? I'd prefer to cook it without alcohol... Thanks

Indeed a marvellous-Madrid-meal... or some Costa... whatever.
Very nice without chicken, not to say even better... pure sea flavour!
