  • 1kg pack chicken thighs
  • 4 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 225g Asda Extra Special Chorizo, diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 450g Asda large vine-ripened tomatoes, peeled, de-seeded and chopped
  • 3 pinches of saffron
  • 400g Asda Paella Spanish Rice
  • 1.2 litres hot chicken stock
  • 100g frozen broad beans
  • 155g pack green beans, halved
  • 20 live mussels, cleaned
  • 240g pack Asda Raw King Prawns
  • Asda Garlic Mayonnaise, to serve
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Cut any excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs, leaving enough to cover the tops and sides. Dust all over with smoked paprika and season. Pack in a roasting tin, in a single layer, skin side up and roast for 30 minutes until cooked and the skin is brown.

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a very large pan or a wok and cook the chorizo for 5 minutes until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  • Add the rest of the oil to the pan with the onion, garlic, tomatoes and saffron. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring.

  • Add the chicken, chorizo and the pan juices. Stir in the rice and three quarters of hot chicken stock and cook until bubbling.

  • Reducing the heat, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Add the beans and cook for 5 minutes, then add seafood and remaining stock and cook for 10-12 minutes until the rice is tender, the mussels are open and the prawns are pink. Serve with bread and garlic mayo.
