Serves: Makes 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds) cut into 8 pieces
  • 1¾ teaspoons sea or kosher salt, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 9 ounces Spanish chorizo (3 links) cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 sprig fresh oregano
  • 1 can (28 ounces) plum tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped
  • 2½ cups Bomba rice
  • 6 cups hot chicken broth, low sodium
  • Large pinch saffron
  • 1 pound shrimp, rinsed, peeled and deveined
  • 12 littleneck clams
  • ½ cup chopped Italian parsley
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen (do not need to thaw) peas
  • 1½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Lemon wedges for serving


Procedures:

This version of the traditional Spanish dish is sure to please any crowd.

Put the oil in the cooking pot of the Multicooker set to Brown/Sauté at 400°F.

While unit is heating, season the chicken parts on both sides with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper. Once unit is hot, brown the chicken, skin side down first, about 5 minutes for each side. Remove and reserve. Add the chorizo and brown on both sides.

Once chorizo has browned, reduce the temperature to 350°F and add the garlic and onion with the paprika, oregano and ¼ teaspoon salt. Sauté until vegetables are softened and lightly browned, about 2 to 5 minutes.

Put the tomatoes into the cooking pot with the sautéed vegetables. Increase the temperature to 400°F. Cook the tomatoes until reduced and slightly caramelized, about 7 to 8 minutes. Be sure to stir the tomatoes occasionally to prevent burning.

Add the rice to the unit and stir to coat with tomato mixture. Add the hot broth and saffron and stir together well. Cover and reduce the temperature to 325°F. Allow rice to simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the chicken pieces to the cooking pot by nestling them in the rice; simmer, covered for an additional 15 minutes.

While chicken is simmering, season shrimp with remaining salt and pepper. Add to unit with the clams and simmer, covered, for an additional 8 minutes, until clamshells have opened.

Stir in the parsley, peas and lemon juice.

Serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side.

Note: Bomba Rice is a Spanish-style rice specific for paella. It can be found in specialty or gourmet stores, or possibly in the international section of many large grocery stores. If you cannot find it, Arborio rice can be used in its place.
