  • 1/4 teaspoon crumbled saffron threads
  • 3/4 cups warm sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh cut in bite-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper diced

Method

Stir saffron into broth; let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, sprinkle salt over chicken. In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken. Transfer to plate.

Add remaining oil to pan; cook onion and red pepper over low heat until onion is translucent, 10 minutes.

Stir in garlic and tomato paste; cook for 30 seconds. Stir in rice; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add saffron broth, 3/4 cup (175 mL) water, wine, chorizo and paprika. Return chicken to pan; bring to boil. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until rice is tender and no liquid remains, about 20 minutes. Stir in parsley. Let stand for 5 minutes.
