Paella - Rice with Seafood and Chicken

The Best Paella is Here!

Paella is Spain's most famous dish. It’s also a flavor-packed, one-pot meal for family and friends! Our recipe features tender grains of GOYA® Valencia Rice, a short-grained rice traditionally used in Paella because it absorbs three times its weight in liquid without becoming mushy – that means more flavor in every bite! Add garlicky GOYA® Chorizo, golden-brown chicken, and seafood, and you have a crowd-pleasing feast.

Serves 8

Prep time: 15 min.

Total time: 1 hr.


2 tbsp. GOYA® Olive Oil

8 bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces (like breasts, legs and/or thighs)

4 GOYA® Chorizos, cut in 1/4 inch slices

1 medium onion, diced

1 green pepper, diced

4 tsp. GOYA® Minced Garlic or 8 cloves minced garlic

3 cups GOYA® Valencia Rice

5 cups water

1 tsp. salt

3 packets GOYA® Cubitos Chicken Bouillon

2 packets Sazón GOYA® with Azafrán

16 little neck clams, rinsed

16 mussels, scrubbed and bearded

1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 lb. medium size scallops, muscle tab removed

1 8 ounce can tiny peas, drained, or 1/2 cup frozen peas

1/4 cup GOYA® Pimientos, diced, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 400°F
2. In a paella pan, or large casserole, heat oil on medium. Brown the chicken on both sides. Add the chorizo when the chicken is half done. When both are browned, remove them and keep warm.
3. In the same pan stir in the onion, pepper and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent.
4. Stir in the rice and cook for 2 minutes, coating the rice with the oil. Stir in the water, salt, cubitos en polvo and sazón. Return the chicken and chorizo to the pan. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, and place in oven.
5. After 15 minutes, stir in the seafood. Cover and return to oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and check for doneness of all the ingredients. Return to oven if it needs more time. Otherwise, sprinkle the pimientos over the top, cover and let the dish rest for 10 minutes in a warm place.
