  1. Fry the chicken and chorizo until cooked
  2. Remove the chicken and chorizo from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside for now.
  3. Add the onion, carrots, pepper, celery, peas, sweetcorn and green beans and fry for 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the rice and fry for 1 minute to soak up any moisture in the pan and the flavour from the oils left from the chorizo.
  5. Add the chicken and chorizo back in the pan along with the paella kit and stock and simmer on a medium heat covered with a lid for 25 – 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add a little extra water if the rice isn’t quite cooked and if its dried out.
