A lovely paella that will make you dream of sunny Spain. Ready in 45 minutes, at around £2.50 a head, it won't break the bank either.

Ingredients

  • 110g cured chorizo, sliced
  • 1 large Spanish onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika

  • A handful of green beans, halved

Method

    1. Heat a large pan over a medium heat and dry-fry the chorizo, sliced, until it is golden and the oil is released. Remove from the pan and set aside.
    2. Add the onion to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, then stir in the sweet smoked paprika and the hot paprika and cook for a further 2 minutes.
    3. Add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes, then remove from the pan and set aside.
    4. Heat a knob of butter in the pan and stir in the rice, then add 1 litre hot chicken stock, stir well and cook for 10 minutes.
    5. Return the chorizo, chicken and onion to the pan with the red pepper, green beans, and tomatoes. Season and cook for a further 5 minutes, until the rice is tender.
    6. Stir a handful finely chopped fresh flatleaf parsley into the paella and serve immediately.

Love this meal, quick, easy, tasty. Done it for 8 at the weekend (so doubled the ingredients). Every one commented how tasty it was. I put a drop of Worcester Sauce in to which gave a lovely after taste. Done it with the Spanish potatoes which also went down a treat!!
