Serves 4
4 chicken thigh fillets
1 chorizo sausage, finely chopped
1 onion, sliced

Spray a large frying or paella pan with a little vegetable oil spray. Allow the pan to heat up until just about at smoke point and add the chicken, allow the first side to brown before turning over.


When the chicken has colour, add the chorizo, onion and pepper and stir. Cook for another 5 minutes and add the garlic, basil and rice.


Stir and cook for 2 minutes, add stock, turmeric and paprika.


Reduce the heat to low and cook for about 8-15 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the rice is tender and fluffy. Add beans with 5 minutes to go.


Before serving, stir through lemon zest, juice and a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Garnish with lemon wedges.
