Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil over a medium heat and sauté the onions until golden. Add the garlic and tomatoes and cook for another minute. Add the smoked paprika and saffron and allow to infuse for 5 minutes. 
  2. Pour the Arborio rice into the pan and toast slightly. Add the chicken stock mixed with the piri-piri  sauce and leave to simmer, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, but the rice is not dry. Do not stir the rice, as you want a crusty layer to form on the bottom of the pan. 
  3. While the paella is cooking, heat the canola oil over a medium heat. Add the chicken to the pan to brown, then remove and cook in the oven for 15 minutes.  
  4. To serve, place the chicken thighs and roasted red pepper in paella. Scatter over the parsley and squeeze over lots of fresh lime.

I'd throw in a few green olives & some green peas if I want to call it "paella;" deglaze the chicken with some white wine or vino verde, too.
