This was a tasty & easy version of paella. I made it a true skillet dinner & sauted chunks of chicken breast in the first step. I served with a salad & bread. Nice meal!

Muy Bueno! This is wonderful! I made this exactly as directed other than halving the recipe. Every single ingredient complements each of the others and is truly a tasty delight. Thanks SueVM for a terrific dish that I will repeat often. Made for ZWT5 2009.
