I am going to start by chopping up the Chorizo, the onions then the chicken breast and in the meantime I am going to heat the pan so we can get going and eat this really delicious Paella.
I will use a Paella pan but if you don’t have a Paella pan use the largest kind of pan that you have, I am now going to start on the fire, pour in a little bit of olive oil in there and we are going to start frying up the onions and get it all going.
Make sure to turn the heat on medium, you don’t want it too hot because you may want to put the onions in there but you don’t really want to brown them, just soften them.After you place the onions drop in all that chicken and make sure to season it with a bit of salt and in the same time I am going to place all that red pepper in there and just mix it all around and try to get everything nicely covered.
After about five minutes I am going to add one teaspoon of turmeric, a little spoon of paprika and that crushed up garlic, I will now give that a good stir around because now I have cooked it for around ten minutes.

If you like white wine now is the time to pour a bit in but if you don’t drink you don’t need to add it, I think that white wine adds a little of flavor.After about 15 minutes of total cooking you can add the rice and give it a good mix up in order to coat all that rice with those delicious juices.

Now is the time to pour in the chicken stock, turn it up to a boil and one it comes to a boil turn it down to a simmer for about 25 minutes, while it is boiling I am going to add a bit of saffron, give it a good mix up and I am going to turn it down to a simmer.
When it is almost done I am going to add my olives, while I do so I make sure to give it a really gentle stir because the rice is all sticky.
In the end I am going to add the peas, I will give it a very gentle mix, put a tin foil it and wait for it to cool down, in the end I am going to place the boiled eggs on top.

I advise you to serve this meal with some Edi KanteeXtro NV or Francois Lamarche La Grande Rue Grand Cru 2000 as the flavor is similar to DRC since terroir is right next to each other. Unlike the DRC this one is drinkable only after 13 years. Good earth, even though less sour, powerful aroma of blackberry, mushroom, earth with some spice inside, it is simply a great wine.
