Chicken and Seafood Paella is just as delicious if not more delicious than paella made with chorizo.
Pan – for even cooking and heat delivery, its critical to use a heavy pan that will conduct and maintain heat, preferably carbon steel, but cast iron can be used as an alternative Rice – use Bomba rice for best consistency. Once rice is added and distributed, do not stir any further as this will cause it to release starch and become sticky. Rice should be firm and fluffy
Seasoning – season ingredients as you add them with salt/pepper to ensure final dish is adequately seasoned
Chicken Stock – rice should remain hydrated for 18-20 minutes. If the chicken stock evaporates before it is done, lower heat and add additional ½ cup of reserved chicken stock
