When camping, it’s important to have all the correct ingredients before you head away. For a simple Paella which you can cook simply and quickly, you will need these few simple ingredients.











How To Make Paella – with Chicken & Chorizo

Step 1. Chop up your ingredients

To get the full flavour of all your ingredients in one, chop up all your ingredients into bite-size manageable pieces. Slice the Chorizo, chop the chicken thighs into 5 cm squares, dice your onion, and slice up your chillies.

Step 2. Cook your onion, chicken and chorizo

In a fresh wok or pot, add a splash of oil. Once your pot is hot and your oil has spread across your pan, it is time to add your onion. Whilst occasionally tossing your onion, cook it until it is golden brown. You can then add the chicken and chorizo. stirring occasional, you want the chicken to be completely white and cooked through the middle.

Step 5. Cooking your rice

Whilst very occasionally string the pot, leave the ingredients in the wok to cook for half an hour. You want to make sure your rice and fluffy and light by this time. Cook for longer if the rice has not soaked up all the water.
