Paella Recipe

Here at The Essential Ingredient we LOVE paella. We import paella stands, burners, pans & all the ingredients you need to make a delicious paella at home. It’s the perfect dish to make when feeding a crowd or even when there’s only two of you at home. The paella stand & burners makes for a nice change from the BBQ in summer + they are portable enough to take camping. If you want to give paella a go for the first time or you are in need of a new recipe, try this one:

2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil View
400gm Chicken Thighs, diced

1L Chicken Stock, heated
1/2 jar Peeled Tomatoes View

This recipe is cooked in a 34cm paella pan & cooked on our paella burner.
I have halved, doubled & tripled this recipe, depending on how many I cook for. Just remember to use the correct size pan, depending on how many people you are feeding.
