    PingiChick's Note:

    This is the original paelle recipe as it was given to me by a lady who made it for her Portuguese husband. Modifications I have made: I use chicken breasts and often omit pork, cook the sausage and slice into coins, use Basmati rice, don't peel tomatoes, add a 10 oz box of frozen artichoke hearts to the broth and rice mixture, substitute broth made with chicken granules and I add the shrimp at the end with the peas so as not to be over cooked. I bake the paella in a Dutch oven instead of a roasting pan.
