Method

Put the paella pan on the heat with the olive oil • Sauté the chicken and rabbit pieces to brown all over • Add the green and continue cooking, lowering the heat so as to not burn the vegetables • Add the chopped onion and when golden, add the tomato and paprika • Leave to cook for between 7 and 8 minutes • Add hot water until you reach 1cm below the rim of the pan and then bring to the boil, add the rice and the saffron • Cook for 8 more minutes on a high heat, check the seasoning and cook for 6 more minutes on a low heat • Cook for the remaining 3 to 4 minutes just from the heat of the pan • Do not stir during the final cooking phase

NB: the paella pan’s diameter should match the amount of rice needed. For six people, it should be 45-50cm in diameter
