The instruction how to make Chicken, chorizo (and prawn) paella

  1. Combine paprika and 1 teaspoon of turmeric in a bowl. Add chicken to spice mixture. Using your fingertips, rub spices into chicken.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a paella pan or a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chorizo, onion, garlic and chilli. Cook, stirring occasionally for 4 minutes or until chorizo is light golden. If using prawns add prawns to chorizo mixture and cook for a further 2 minutes or until prawns change colour. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add remaining oil to pan. Cook chicken for about 7 minutes or until golden. Add 1 cup of stock to pan. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 8 minutes. Remove the lid; boil gently, uncovered for 10 minutes or until almost all liquid has evaporated.
  4. Combine 2 cups of remaining stock and remaining turmeric in a jug. Add rice, tomatoes and stock mixture to pan. Stir to combine. Return to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.
  5. Add peas, chorizo mixture and remaining 1/2 cup of stock. Simmer for 5 minutes or until stock is just absorbed. Serve with lemon wedges.
