Shellfish and Chicken Paella

Hands down the best paella I have ever eaten! I'm definitely going to make each and every recipe in Jacques Pépin's "Fast Food My Way" and "More Fast Food My Way" cookbooks. I have been thrilled with every recipe (and techniques). I had a tough time, however, finding authentic Spanish dried chorizo, rice, and saffron, so I ordered from Amazon Prime and wasn't sorry! Starting with quality ingredients is key. You don't need a paella pan for this, and you don't have to cook it on the grill outdoors. I used a large, nonstick fry pan with lid and cooked on the stovetop.

Serve this amazing dish with Gazpacho and Pineapple in Dark Rum Sauce accompanied by a good Spanish red wine.
