Chicken and chorizo paella kit
We did a lot of experiments to nail down this recipe, trying various permutations on a theme of fully cooking the whole dish and reheating it but were never completely happy with the result.
So we're delivering this to you in kit form and it's brilliantly foolproof: First, there's the delicious cooked-down mixture of chicken, chorizo, vegetables and flavourings which we pack in foil trays together with uncooked paella rice, it comes with a pouch of saffron-infused homemade chicken stock. Ready to cook in the oven or emptied into a saucepan and cooked on the stovetop.
Frozen product. Defrost before cooking.
STOVETOP: pour the stock into a heavy-based medium saucepan (approximately 4L) and bring to boil, stir in the rice and chicken mix and simmer for 18 minutes uncovered.
OVEN: heat the stock in a saucepan then stir it through the chicken and rice mix (in the foil tray) and place the tray into a preheated oven (FF) 200C uncovered for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, stir through some frozen peas and chopped parsley if you like, and serve with lemon wedges and a green salad.
