    English_Rose's Note:

    This full-flavoured chicken and chorizo paella recipe allows you to make one dish and freeze a second. You'll have a delicious dinner tucked away for a rainy day, with minimal extra effort. Makes 2 meals, each serving 4. To freeze and reheat: Freeze half the paella in 2 freezer-proof boxes for up to 1 month. Thaw in the fridge for 24 hours or until completely thawed. Microwave in portions on high at 900W for 3-4 minutes, until piping hot.

    1. 1
      Heat 2 large, deep frying pans over a medium heat. When hot, divide the chorizo between the pans and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, until turning golden and the oil has been released. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    2. 2
      Divide the chicken between the pans and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring, until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    3. 3
      Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to each pan, then divide the onions between them. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 minutes, until softened. Divide the garlic and paprika between each pan and cook for 1 minute. Divide the rice between them, stir to coat in the oil. Add half the hot stock to each. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    4. 4
      Return the chicken to the pans and divide the peppers, beans and tomatoes between the pans. Stir and cook for 5 minutes, adding a little more stock or hot water if necessary.
    5. 5
      Season and stir the chorizo and parsley into each pan. Divide 1 pan of the paella between 2 freezer-proof boxes, cool, label and freeze (see freezing tip).
    6. 6
      Continue to cook the other paella for 5 minutes or until the rice is just tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.
