Method

  1. Heat the oil in a paella pan or large frying pan, add the onions and garlic, and fry for 5 mins. Push the onions over to one side, add the chicken and cook for 10 mins, turning occasionally, until the chicken is nicely coloured.
  2. Stir in the rice and paprika, then pour in the wine. Let it sizzle a bit, then stir in the saffron stock. Add the beans and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 mins until the rice is tender and has absorbed most of the stock. If it starts to look dry, add a splash more stock. Add the prawns for the final few mins, if using, until they turn from grey to pink. Season generously and allow to stand for 1-2 mins before serving.

Have made better paellas (Gordon Ramsay one is hard to beat); needed more flavour, perhaps in the form of adding some chilli or chorizo. The runner beans were a surprisingly good addition but needed longer than 15 mins to cook. Won't do this one again unless have a glut of runner beans.

Tasted really nice and was surprisingly simple to make. I added a bit of parsley at the end and served it with some lemon wedges.
