Seafood and Chicken Paella With Artichoke Hearts

READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • Cut the red pepper, removing the seeds and slice into 4 sections. In the oven (475) or over the grill, roast the peppers until charred, about 12 - 15 minutes. Remove the pepper to a bowl and place a plate over it to steam the veggies for about 10 - 15 minutes. Remove the skin and cut the peppers into strips. Set aside in a baggie.
  • In a bowl, combine the olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper. In two separate containers, add the marinade to the chicken and the prawns. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Heat about 1 T of the marinade in a skillet over medium high heat and cook the chicken until lightly brown. Remove the chicken to a plate.
  • Add the sausage to the pan and cook over medium heat until well browned. Remove to the plate.
  • Add a bit of the reserved marinade to the skillet and add the onions and garlic. Cook until soft. Stir in the rice and brown slightly.
  • Remove the onions/rice mixture to a paella pan. Using part of the chicken stock, deglaze the skillet and add the liquid to the rice.
  • Add the rest of the broth, tomatoes, saffron threads, chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until rice is tender.
  • Cover the peas with warm water for about 10 minutes to bring them to room temperature. Drain.
  • Add white wine, peas, scallops and artichoke hearts; toss gently.
  • Drain shrimp; push into rice mixture along with the clams. Add the red pepper.
  • Bake, covered in 350 oven for 15 - 20 minutes, or until shrimp are pink and clams are open.
  • Garnish with parsley, lemon slices and parmesan cheese.
