    1. 1
      Heat the paella pan (or any large, flat bottomed saute pan) over medium-high heat, add olive oil and garlic and fry the peppers (Add more peppers if you want to serve some as an appetizer.)
    2. 2
      Remove peppers and set aside.
    3. 3
      Add chicken parts to the pan, turning to sear all sides.
    4. 4
      When chicken is golden, add the onions and saute until translucent.
    5. 5
      Add the tomatoes and the stock and reduce the sofrito base down for about a half hour.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, crush the saffron with the smoked paprika in a mortar and pestle and add it to the stock.
    7. 7
      After a half hour, stir in the rice and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Important: Do not stir or cover the rice; as the rice cooks, add the vegetables and the garbanzo beans.
    9. 9
      During the final 10 minutes, poke the shrimp and shellfish into the rice mixture so that they will cook.
    10. 10
      You will know the dish is done when you can smell the smoky odor of the rice caramelizing on the bottom of the pan, and all the liquid is absorbed by the rice.
    11. 11
      Finish with squirts of lemon and leave lemon wedges in the paella pan or perched along the rim.
