La Paella is a traditional dish from Spain.

This Spanish dish is super flavorful and can be made of all kind of seafood or just chicken.

The king ingredient for Paella Recipe is saffron.  It is one of the most rare & expensive seasonings, which usually cost around $20 for 0.03oz.  I noticed that my local Fred Meyer store sometimes has sale on seasonings and sometimes you can buy saffron for just $7.99.  Saffron adds a rich flavor to Paella Dish.

This Paella Recipe is made of amazing ingredients like saffron, homemade chicken broth, chicken thighs, shrimp, peas, garlic, tomato, onion, paella rice, and garnished with fresh parsley.

  1. This recipe looks super flavorful. I bought saffron for a recipe months ago and have been looking for another to use some more of it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I couldn’t find “paella” rice but did find a short grain rice. Thankfully, I read the bag because the majority of short grain rice requires 45 minutes to cook and at least 10 minutes to steam. Something to consider when cooking this recipe. Also, add chorizo it’ll boost the flavor in a great way. This recipe had great taste just took almost twice as long to cook as I anticipated. Thanks for hooking us up!

    1. Thank you so much Kim for sharing your cooking experience and giving a great tip about cooking with different rice I am sure it will be helpful for my readers! You are awesome and I am glad you liked this paella recipe!
