Mixed Meat Paella (Chorizo, chicken, and bacon) Recipe

Yesterday I made Stuart a paella for tea and not only did he love it but my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter followers all loved the look of it too so I thought I had better share the recipe! I made it myself and didn’t write it down as I went along but luckily I can remember how I made it so I can repeat it another time and you guys can try it too!

1. Using Low calorie cooking spray in a large frying pan over a medium high heat, fry garlic and the finely chopped onion until soft.
2. Add paella rice and fry gently for 2 minutes.
3. Add two ladles of the chicken stock and stir gently until rice has absorbed all the liquid.
4. Add two more ladles of stock one at a time stirring gently, only adding the second when the first has been completely absorbed.
5. Add to the pan the paprika, quartered onions, peppers, sausage slices, chicken, and bacon along with another 2 ladles of stock and stir gently until liquid absorbed.
6. Continue adding the stock a ladle at a time only adding the next when the previous has been absorbed and stirring gently until only 2 ladles of stock remain.
7. Add the halved cherry tomatoes and the second to last ladle of stock and stir gently until liquid absorbed.
8. Add the spinach with the final ladle of stock and stir until liquid absorbed and the spinach has started to wilt but still is whole and fresh looking.
9. Serve immediately.

Although if allowed to cool and thoroughly reheated this was just as tasty the following day Stuart says! I am vegetarian so couldn’t tell you!

Slimming World have stopped making the Chorizo sausages but other Slimming World sausages still go well in this particularly the new hot dog ones.

Whilst this recipe is currently syn free whilst following Slimming World remember it is your responsibility to check syn values etc.
