Cooking Series presents... HOW TO MASTER THE SPANISH PAELLA! + PRESENTATION TIP



You will need: (1) chicken breast, (1) red/green/yellow bell pepper, (1/2) onion, (1) clove of garlic, (1) can of green beans, (2) apricots, (1) can of peas, (1) cup of rice, (1) tomato, (1) lemon, (1) can of roasted sweet red peppers, (1) coloring spices or saffron, olive oil, salt and pepper, a large frying pan

Let's start by peeling and chopping the garlic and the onion. Mix them in a small bowl. Slice the chicken breast and add it to the bowl, too. In the frying pan, add some olive oil and heat it. Pour the mix and remove. Let it fry for some 10 minutes.

In the meantime, mix the following ingredients in the same bowl, once they are sliced: the roasted sweet red peppers, the tomato, the cores of the apricots, the green beans and the peas. Use a strainer to remove the water. Add it to the frying pan.

Here's the tricky part: the amount of rice depends on the number of guests: 1/2 cup of rice is enough for two people. Each measure of rice will require three measures of water. Add the rice you need, along with the water, two or three pinches of salt, one pinch of black pepper and the saffron or coloring spice. Turn the heat up until the mixture boils, and then turn it down for 20 minutes. The rice will absorb the water little by little. Be careful not to allow the rice to get dry! Slice two lemons in quarters, and give two quarters to each guest. The flavor will be bette if you squeeze the lemon and mix it with the Paella.
