A blend of herbs, spices and seasonings infused in sunflower oil, for making rustic Spanish-style paella.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1 Schwartz Spanish Paella Flavour Shot
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 100g (4oz) chorizo, diced
  • 450g (1lb) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • 325g (11oz) paella or risotto rice
  • 1 litre (1 pint 15 fl oz) water
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 100g (4oz) frozen peas


  • Step one: Dice the onions and the chorizo
  • Step two: Add the contents of the Schwartz Flavour Shot into a frying pan on medium heat.

  • Step three: Add the chorizo and onion to the flavour shot and fry for 5 minutes

  • Step four: Add the chicken and fry for 2 – 3 minutes, then add the rice and stir for a further 1 minute.

  • Step five: Chop the pepper and add it to the mix along with the peas and water.

  • Step six: Bring to boil and then simmer for 20 – 25 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the rice is tender. Stir occasionally.

  • Step seven: It’s now ready to serve.

Recipe suggests to add a few olives or a lovely fresh salad. I added a basic green salad, consisting of tomatoes, kale, cucumber and lettuce.
