Chicken, Chorizo, & Shellfish Paella

Shrimp
Mussels
Clams
Chicken thighs (bone in/ skin on)
Chorizo
Sofrito (diced onion, red bell pepper, tomato, garlic)
Paprika
Saffron
Bomba Rice
Peas
Chicken stock
White wine
Paella pan
Salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, smoked paprika


As long as you prep everything first, it's such an easy (and impressive) dish to put together. You can technically make it without bomba and a paella pan, but it's worth the investment.

Cut chicken thighs in 1/2 through the bone. Season.

Quick sauté chorizo in paella pan, remove. Brown seasoned chicken pieces, remove. Sauté sofrito until cooked down. Add rice. Deglaze w white wine. Add chicken stock and large pinch of saffron. Bring to boil. Add chicken pieces and cook on heat 10 min. Turn temp to low, add chorizo and cook 5 min., or until most of water has absorbed. Add shellfish and peas, and cover. Cook another 5 min. on low. Turn off heat, rest 5 min covered.

Garnish w parsley and lemon wedges.

i'm, like, totally allergic to this but it's so beautiful i'd be tempted to take a bunch of claritin, arm myself with an epipen, and throw caution to the wind!

Oh no! I'm so sympathetic. I'm allergic to dairy..and married to a French man, who's dad is a chef. Its all delicious butter and cheese (btw, soy cheese is not a suitable substitute. Soy cheese is bs). Try it with just the chorizo and chicken..and artichokes would be nice. No paella w a side of epipen.

Thank you! It's so easy (mostly prep), but so much fun when you put that pretty paella pan in the middle of the table.
