Chicken & Chorizo Paella (CleverChef Pro)
A tasty alternative paella recipe if seafood isn’t your thing. This dish works best served in the middle of your dinner table so everyone can dive in.
Serve scattered with chopped parsley and lemon wedges around the side.
1 tbsp olive or cooking oil
1 red pepper, diced
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 chorizo sausages, sliced into discs
2 chicken breasts, chopped into small cubes
250g paella rice
1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp paella seasoning
1L chicken stock
125g frozen peas
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Select the SAUTE function, scroll down to CHICKEN BREAST, press START then add the oil and allow to heat. Sear the chorizo for ~2 minutes then drain on some kitchen roll.
Add the chicken, red pepper, onion and garlic and stir for ~3 minutes until the pepper and onion begins to soften, then add the rice and stir to toast slightly.
Add the tomatoes, stock and paella seasoning and stir to combine, then press BACK to cancel the Saute mode.
Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select PRESSURE COOK and RICE WHITE and press START.
When the program has finished, we recommend the SLOW RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.
Select the SAUTE function again, then CHICKEN BREAST and press START. Add the peas and chorizo and cook for a further 4 minutes, stirring regularly. Then press BACK to end cooking.
