Chicken Paella


    This is a lovely tasty and healthy recipe that i made almost by mistake. It is great cheap family meal with at least 2 of your 5 a day in, flavoursome and mine always gets eaten up quickly!

    2 people made this


    • 250g diced chicken breast
    • 100g paella rice
    • 500 ml chicken stock
    • mushrooms as many as you like
    • 1 onion
    • 1 courgette
    • 1 yellow pepper
    • 1-2 garlic cloves
    • 2 pinches of paprika
    • handful of thyme
    • handful of coriander
    • pinch of mixed spice
    • Butter to start cooking the onion and mushrooms


    1. First put butter in a hot pan with chopped onions and mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes then add the paella rice.
    2. Wait for a few minutes until the rice goes opaque. Then you can add the garlic and courgette.
    3. Add half of the chicken stock and pepper and simmer for 10 mins. Stir every so often to make sure all the rice is soaking up the stock and slowly add more stock in as it gets socked up by the rice.
    4. Add the paprika, simmer for another 5-10 mins or until all the rice has soaked up the stock.
    5. Cook the chicken in a seperate pan. I like to sprinkle some seasoning on the chicken to give it a little extra flavour too.
    6. Add a small pinch of mixed spice, the thyme and coriander and black pepper into the rice combo, stir to mix it in and serve with the chicken.
