PAELLA SPANISH WITH CHICKEN AND SEA FOOD Today at 11:20 am

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 x 3 lb (1.35 kg) Traditional Free Range chicken, jointed into 8 pieces

1 large onion, peeled and roughly chopped

1 red pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped into chunks

4 oz (110 g) Spanish chorizo sausage in a piece, skin removed and cut into ½ inch (1 cm) dice

2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

1 heaped teaspoon paprika

¼ level teaspoon cayenne pepper

½ level teaspoon saffron strands (½ x 0.4 g sachet)

8 oz (225 g) ripe red tomatoes, skinned and roughly diced

12 raw tiger prawns, shell on, defrosted if frozen, 4 with heads, 8 without

2 oz (50 g) fresh or frozen shelled peas

1 lemon, cut into wedges, to garnish

salt and freshly milled black pepper

PAELLA
Method
Once you have peeled, chopped, prepared and assembled everything, heat the oil in the pan over a fairly high heat. Now season the chicken joints, adding 4 of them to the hot oil to sauté on all sides until golden brown, then remove them to a plate and do the same with the other 4 joints.
Next add the onion, pepper and chorizo and fry these over a medium heat for 6-8 minutes, or until they're nicely tinged brown at the edges. Now add the garlic, paprika, cayenne and saffron and cook for another minute, then return the chicken to the pan, followed by the tomatoes, plenty of seasoning and 2 pints (1.2 litres) boiling water.
Next, bring everything up to a gentle simmer, turn the heat down and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes. After that, remove the chicken pieces and set them aside, then pour the rice into the centre of the pan. Bring everything back up to the boil, give a final stir and simmer, still uncovered, for about 10 minutes. During that time, shake the pan occasionally and move it around on the hob a little if the hob plate is not as big as the base of the pan.
Next, return the chicken, along with the prawns and peas, to the pan and continue to simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked, adding a little more hot liquid if you think it's necessary. Now shake the pan again, making sure the rice is completely immersed. Turn the prawns over halfway through the cooking time – they will turn pink when cooked. The rice at the edges of the pan
