  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 chicken joints
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, cored, deseeded and sliced
  • 4 tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 250 g/8 oz long-grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered saffron
  • 600 ml/1 pint hot chicken stock
  • 8 mussels, scrubbed and bearded
  • 12 raw king prawns, unshelled
  • 125 g/4 oz piece garlic sausage, chopped
  • 50 g/2 oz frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedges, to garnish


  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large shallow pan and quickly brown the chicken joints. Remove from the pan.
  • Wipe the pan and heat the remaining oil. Add the onion, red pepper, tomatoes and garlic and fry gently for 8—10 minutes.
  • Stir in the rice and saffron and season to taste. Cook for 3 minutes, then stir in the stock and bring slowly to the boil. Gently stir with a fork, then arrange the chicken, mussels, prawns, sausage and peas on top of the rice. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Discard any mussels that have not opened. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately.
