Valencian Paella recipe.

Wowza dinner was so gorgeous tonight. In honor of my Spanish heritage I decided to make a low fat version of Valencian Paella. Spanish food is my ultimate favorite cuisine, its devilishly delicious and beautiful to look at. Just thinking about Aaoli, Patatas Bravas, Tortilla and Paella makes my mouth water. Can I just be in Spain now please? Thanks.

Well unfortunately I cannot be in beautiful Spain but I can try and bring a little of Spain to South West London. Here is my version of Valencian Paella.

Firstly you will need the ingredients here.
<---------- 1 medium sized onion, finely chopped

1 red pepper, sliced

1 green pepper, sliced
11 oz Paella Rice
1 pack of chicken thigh, diced
Packet of raw tiger prawns
Pinch of saffron
1.5 pt chicken stock
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
75g of chorizo (optional at 7 syns for the pack)

1. Fry onions and Chorizo over a low heat with fry light,  in a wide frying pan or wok  you will also need a lit. Then add your chicken thighs. (Putting the chicken in now coats it in the lovely flavour from the Chorizo)

2. Stir in the garlic and rice and then add the stock and saffron.

3. Cook over a medium heat for 20 mins with the lid off. What ever you do DON'T STIR. If you stir you will have a risotto

4. Add the prawns and cook for 5-10 more minutes with your lid on.

Serve piping hot

Voila! Spain in your kitchen with a fraction of the calories!
