Chicken & Chorizo Paella Recipe

A good Spanish Paella is light, refreshing and bursting with flavour – but most important of all, it’s easy!

We’ve put together a quick 20 minute recipe to bring you the flavours of Spain from the comfort of your home.


  • 200g paella rice
  • 200g chicken thigh
  • 120g sliced chorizo
  • 2 tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 2 cloves of ginger (crushed)
  • saffron
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 chicken stock cube (400-500ml of water)


  1. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan before cooking the chicken and chorizo separately and then leave in a bowl to the side (we will add these back in later).
  1. Add the shallots and garlic to the pan with the leftover oil from cooking the chicken and chorizo – simmer until they start to slightly brown and then add the dry Paella rice, allowing it to be coated in the oil.
  1. Then add the chopped tomatoes, chicken and chorizo back into the pan and season with a pinch of saffron, cayenne and paprika.
  2. Add half the stock until the level of liquid is just above the rice and leave to simmer for 10-15min (Add the left over stock slowly to make sure there is enough liquid in the pan to cook the rice and it doesn’t burn).
  1. Serve hot and with a lime wedge!
