Easy to follow directions, lovely subtle flavours and super yummy dinner. I had no chicken on hand so just used 500g frozen prawns. I put them in at the '10 minute' mark out of the 10-20 mins in oven stage and they came out beautifully. I also used pimiento peppers rather than your standard bell pepper and cut up enough of them to get a similar quantity. I could not find my frozen peas to use in this meal, so used frozen celery, placed in at the '20 minute' mark and left in for another 5 mins. Thank you Papa D, once again you have given me the makings of a superb dinner.
Made this as directed using the saffron and this was so easy and delicious! We enjoyed this so much that this will go into my Favorites of 2012 for taste and easiness. Made in memory of PapaD 2012.
Very easy, I liked the concept of baking it in the oven. I also used the turmeric, and I had only green pepper, so used that, and the peas. Lots of flavour, quickly prepared, a new favourite :) Thank you Papa D, this was made in your fond memory.
Very easy and tasty paella! I made just as directed, using the turmeric instead of the saffron. The toasting of the rice is an important step to add a full-bodied flavor to the dish. I really liked how quick and simple this was to make. We really enjoyed this recipe! Made in memory of PapaD, June 2012
