"Love is like pi - natural, irrational, and very important." - Lisa Hoffman

It's been a while since I've posted any recipes but I made what I'm going to call 3.14159265ella...and, as it turned out rather well, I thought I'd add another thrilling installment to the food and drink portion of this blog. The reason for the name change is not just to protect the innocent...but to indicate that this is by no means supposed to be an authentic paella...purely something that satisfies the craving for paella whilst being simple (and fast) to prepare.

The ingredients...

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3/4 of a pound)
  • Chorizo
  • A red pepper
  • A red onion
  • A small can of peas (I buy the kind with no added salt)
  • Olive oil
  • One bag of Vigo saffron yellow rice


The directions...
  • Prepare the rice according to the directions on the back of the bag (this will take about 25 minutes - precisely the amount of time you need to take care of everything else)
  • Heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a wok or deep frying pan on medium/high heat
  • Add some diced red onion and saute until soft
  • Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and add to the pan...continue cooking for about 5 minutes
  • While the chicken is cooking, cut some chorizo into small cubes...I use about 1.5 inches of sausage (a slightly unfortunate turn of phrase but the best way I could describe the amount)
  • Add the chorizo to the pan
  • Add some diced red pepper to the pan
  • A couple of minutes before the rice is ready, drain the can of peas and add them to the mix
  • When the rice is cooked, add it to the pan containing the other ingredients and stir over the heat for a few minutes

And that's it...buen apetito!
