Quick and Easy Paella

Course Main Dishes
Prep. Time 20 mins
Cooking Time 15 - 20 mins
Yields 4 to 6 servings

What You Need
1 cup (250 ml) chicken broth
1/2 cup (125 ml) lemon juice
1/4 tsp (1 ml) saffron
2 tbsp (28.4 g) butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp (1 ml) each, salt ground pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 mild smoked sausages
3 cups (360 g) cooked rice
1/2 cup (125 ml) tomato sauce
1 cup (224 g) frozen peas
18 peeled and deveined shrimp

Preheat grill to medium-high then line grill with non-stick foil. Combine lemon juice, chicken broth and saffron. Bring to a boil and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in butter, garlic, salt and pepper.

Chop chicken and sausages into bite-sized pieces and toss with 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the lemon juice mixture. Spread the chicken evenly on the foil and cook, turning as needed, for 5 minutes. Add the sausages and cook, turning as needed, for 5 to 7 minutes or until well browned and cooked through.

Toss rice with remaining lemon mixture and tomato sauce. Take a rectangle of heavy-duty foil and seal on three sides to form a bag (or use a pre-prepared 'hot bag'). Transfer rice mixture to bag and add the cooked meat, peas and shrimp. Close the bag and smooth as flat as possible. Grill for 10 minutes, flipping and turning the package often, until shrimp are cooked and rice is hot.
