5 chicken thighs, chopped
½ pound Spanish chorizo, sliced
1 pound shrimp
1 pound clams
4 cups calasparra rice
9 cups chicken stock
1 cups white wine
1 large onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 red bell peppers, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 cup parsley, chopped
2 Tablespoons saffron
1 Tablespoon pimenton
½ cup olive oil
juice of one lemon
one bay leaf

Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper.

Heat ¼ cup of olive oil in a large paella pan. Cook the chorizo and chicken thighs together until nicely browned. Set aside.

In the same pan, add a few more tablespoons of olive oil and heat the saffron for 20 seconds then add the onion and garlic and sauté for two minutes then add the tomato and red pepper. Season with salt, pepper and pimenton and add the bay leaf. Cook for another minute. Add the rice and return the chicken and chorizo to the pan.

Add the stock, wine and half of the parsley to the rice and bring to a simmer.

After 20 or 30 minutes when the rice is almost cooked, add the clams, shrimp and lemon juice.

When rice is cooked, add the rest of the parsley and lightly fluff with a wooden spoon.
