Simple Chicken and Sausage Paella

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sous Chef Bentley

This is it, my first recipe. I've been making this "Paella" for years. It's my husband's favourite. It tastes so good, everyone is always surprised when they hear it was cooked in the Microwave. Adapted from The Canadian Living Cooking Collection Series.

A very nice recipe, even though I toned down the 'spicy' factor considerably (health concerns)...Even so, if you like 'spicy', I'm certain you'll LOVE this one...Just one TIP for folks that post a 'microwave' recipe...PLEASE post the 'wattage' of the microwave you used, so that the rest of us can adjust the cooktimes of your recipe, so we won't overcook or undercook your 'creation'...Thank you for posting this recipe!
