Ingredients

  • 250g mini cooking chorizo, sliced into thick chunks
  • 3 skin-on chicken breasts, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 400g paella rice
  • 1 x 90g jar chopped sweet onions
  • a large pinch of saffron
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 litre hot chicken stock
  • 125g asparagus tips
  • 75g fresh or frozen peas
  • 12 langoustines or shell-on jumbo king prawns, defrosted if frozen
  • a large handful of flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • lemon wedges, to serve

Step by step

  1. Fry the chorizo chunks briefly in a very large frying pan until lightly browned. Remove the chorizo with a slotted spoon, then over a high heat, brown the chicken, skin-side down, until the skin is crisp; remove to a plate.

  2. Add the rice, onions, saffron and paprika, and stir for 2 minutes over a medium heat. Add the stock with the chorizo, season with salt and pepper, then add the chicken pieces, skin-side up. Cover with a lid, bring to the boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

  3. Gently stir in the green vegetables and lay the langoustines or prawns over the top. Cover and cook for another 10-12 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the shellfish is piping hot. Scatter over the parsley and serve with lemon wedges.

    Tip
    Using jar of sweet onions cuts down the prep and cooking time, but if you prefer, finely dice a few mild shallots and sweat them in olive oil with a pinch of sugar on a low heat until soft and sweet, before adding the rice and other ingredients at step 2.
