    1. 1
      Heat oil in deep oven proof 12-inch skillet or paella pan over medium-high heat. Add thighs and saute, turning once, about 5 minutes. Add wings and saute, turning all pieces once or twice, until light golden, about 12 minutes. Transfer to plate.

      Add shrimp to skillet and cook, tossing frequently, 1 minute. Transfer to plate.

      Add onion and bell pepper to skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until slightly softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in sausage, garlic, bay leaf, saffron, and thyme; cook 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and breaking up tomatoes, about 5 minutes.
