  • This is our favorite, very hearty, makes enough for 6 if paired with salad. might have to adjust heat setting- i wrote this in my stoves "language".

    Chicken and Sausage Paella

    6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    10 oz box yellow rice
    1 onion
    1 bell pepper
    2 tbsp chopped garlic
    frozen peas
    turkey sausage
    chicken broth
    adobo and pepper

    season the chicken thighs with the adobo and pepper- brown on both sides in olive oil. will finish cooking later. remove thighs, set aside, and add onions peppers. deglaze with chicken broth if needed. cook about half way, during the last minute add chopped garlic. add rice and stir to thoroughly coat with seasoning. add 2 cups chix broth & 1/2 cup water, stir. nestle thighs in, bring to boil, reduce heat to 2, cover and simmer for 25 min. add peas and sausge in after finished cooking. remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. eat eat eat!!! yummmmm

  • why don't you try recipe web sites? Like or or check out some new cookbooks ( if you do not want to buy, the library has many!) I used to read them like novels! Each family has there own preferences. mine will eat anything I make since I am a retired Professional Chef.barbecuing
