  • Summary

    Traditional Spanish paella uses saffron, which adds a vibrant gold color and distinctive flavor. If you are unable to find it, this version is equally delicious without it.

    Ingredients

    • 4 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed saffron (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika or sweet paprika
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 1 pound total)
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 6 ounces dried chorizo, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    • 1/2 medium onion, diced small
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
    • 12 mussels, scrubbed
    • 1/2 pound medium shell-on shrimp, deveined
