Smoky Barbecue Paella

This has to be one of my all time favourite recipes, it transported me instantly to Spains sunny shores, cooking Paella on a BBQ adds a wonderful authentic smoky depth of flavour that works so well, and BBQing the chicken adds so much extra flavour to the finished dish.

Please head on over to Food Magazine and my Smoky and the Wood Pit Blog for the recipe here.

Arroz con Pollo Recipe.

Using the leg and wing portions from a jointed chicken(see previous post), heat a large casserole or a large frying pan with a lid, brown off the chicken portions in a little olive oil. When these are a lovely golden brown, add a finely chopped onion and a couple of sliced garlic cloves, some finely chopped celery, red pepper and carrot, allow to fry until soft and add some slices of chorizo which should start giving off their delicious red oil and smokey taste. You can also add frozen peas or  chopped tomato to bulk out at this stage.

Add 70g paella rice per person and allow to cook for a few minutes, before adding enough chicken stock to cover, then half a teaspoon of smoked paprika and a few strands of saffron and season with salt and pepper. Cover and allow to simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed, then pop a quartered lemon on the top and turn the heat down and cook for another few minutes, hopefully the rice will start to form a slight crust on the bottom (which is my favourite bit), the rice will be cooked perfectly, garnish with some chopped flat leaf parsley.

Delicious with a glass of white Rioja.
