CEiMB - Chicken Paella


This will be a short post. My Twitter buddy Margaret of Tea & Scones chose this recipe for Craving Ellie in My Belly. I made this paella for dinner tonight. The recipe calls for sausage, which I omitted, and chicken thighs, which I substituted for with chicken breasts. Early feedback on this one indicated the flavor needed help, so I added smoked Spanish paprika in addition to doubling the garlic. I should have added more paprika as the flavor was still very muted. But it was quick and easy and that's always appreciated.

If you'd like the recipe, you'll find it in Ellie Krieger's book So Easy. And make sure you visit the other Craving Ellie in my Belly cooks. You'll find them here.

It was quick and easy which is always a plus for a week night recipe. It looks great in your bowl. We really enjoyed this recipe.

IT was easy to make. But will also add more seasoning next time. More garlic and paprika.

Looks really tasty.

Thanks for cooking with me this week.
