Easy paella

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red capsicum, seeded, sliced
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1½ cups long-grain rice
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup chopped cooked leftover chicken (see tip)
  • 12 mussels, cleaned
  • 1½ cup frozen peas
  • ¼ cup stuffed green olives, to serve

Preparation method

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan on high. Saute tomatoes, capsicum, onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, until onion is tender. Add rice. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute, until coated in oil.
  2. Stir in stock, juice, turmeric and bay leaf. Season to taste. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 20-25 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid is almost absorbed.
  3. Stir through chicken, mussels and peas. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes, until mussels open (discard any unopened ones). Serve garnished with olives.


Top tip
Instead of leftover chicken, you can use 2 chicken thigh fillets, chopped and cooked.
