This recipe is quick and simple to follow,with vibrant tastes,colours and textures,including the versatile spice Turmeric.

You will need..

2 chicken breasts cut into chunks.

2 small onions finely sliced.

140g cooking chorizo sliced.

1tsp paprika.

1tsp turmeric.

300g paella rice.

850mls hot chicken or vegetable stock.

200g frozen peas.
