Ready In:




  • In a small bowl, stir broth with saffron, salt and chili flakes. Set aside to allow flavors to blend. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces, and slice sausages into 1/2-inch rounds. Remove peas from freezer and set on counter.
  • In a pressure cooker,over medium-high heat, add chicken, sausages, garlic and onion. Cook, stirring constantly, until chicken is no longer pink from 3-5 minutes. Add peppers and tomatoes. Cook stirring often, until peppers start to soften and tomatoes start to break down, about 3 mintes. Add uncooked rice, then pour broth mixture over top.
  • Lock lid of pressure cooker in place. Following directions for your cooker, bring up to full pressure over high heat. Once it as reached maximum pressure, reduce heat to medium-low to maintain even pressure and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow pressure to drop naturally for 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir in peas and sprinkle with parsley, if using. Heat from sauce will cook peas. Serve with thick slices of crusty bread.
  • NO PRESSURE COOKER? Follow recipe but use a large wide bottom saucepan. Once you have added uncooked rice and poured broth mixture over top, stir to combine. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to medum-low. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Remove pan from heat. Stir in peas and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
