Paella with Chicken and Chorizo Recipe
While paella is often associated with seafood, it is made throughout all parts of Spain - not just coastal regions - and got its start as a farm worker's lunch. At its core, paella is about making the most of the ingredients that are readily available, typically including what's in season at the moment. This version is simple to make and includes common ingredients that are on hand year round.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Fill a saucepan with the water and place on medium high heat. Add all four bouillon cubes, saffron and paprika. Bring to a low boil until stock cubes dissolve. Reduce heat to keep warm. 


Season the chicken with salt and pepper and dust with a small amount of smoked paprika. On medium high heat, brown the chicken and chorizo in 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 13-inch paella pan, about 5-10 minutes. Remove to a platter.  


Add the onion, bell pepper, chopped garlic and parsley to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a little more olive oil if needed. Add the rice, tomato, bay leaves and piquillo peppers. Cook for another 5 minutes, until the rice starts to brown. Add broth and stir until it boils. Return the chicken and chorizo pieces, burying them in the paella. Scatter the garlic cloves over the top. 


Place in oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, taste the rice to see if it is done; if it is not, continue to cook. You can leave a little broth in the paella, or cook until the broth is fully absorbed, to your taste. Serve with a crisp green salad, crusty bread and a Spanish white or rosé wine.

This recipe come out the way we love chicken paella. The flavors are perfect. Only thing I will do different next time is drain some of the oil after cooking chorizo and chicken.

i bought a paella pan and ingredients from la tienda many years ago and i've been making this recipe since then. it always gets rave reviews. i recommend trying to drain as much oil as possible off the chicken and chorizo before adding it back to cook and serving the paella with a green salad with a lemony dressing. for four big eaters, i recommend using 1.5 quantities.

When I returned from my trip to Spain, I was on such a Paella search. I downloaded recipes and tried (several times unsuccessfully) to recapture the flavors of what I had throughout the regions of Spain. That's how I discovered La Tienda. I've cooked and shared this recipe a few times, and each time it's a hit. It's easy to make and so delicious, and you don't need a Paella pan (although I was given one this Christmas, finally!) This recipe got me though a week of being snowed in, and is an easy back-pocket dinner or pot-luck meal. To mix it up, I sometimes add chick peas and frozen peas to add another flavor layer. Also, if you're out of your favorite La Tienda chorizo, check out your local grocer's deli meat area- mine stocks a pretty OK Mexican chorizo that works well in the recipe.

My husband is Spanish and I wanted to make something for his family when my parents in law were visiting us for the holidays from Spain. I followed this recipe and and his family was very impressed! I absolutely recommend this recipe to anyone! It's really time consuming but it's worth it because it will turn out to be an amazing dish for the whole family!
