How to make it
- Boil together the broth, saffron and the broth it steeped in, tomato, paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper.
- Heat oil in the paella pan or cast iron 12 inch frying pan.
- Add garlic and onion and cook until soft, then remove.
- Brown chicken, adding oil as needed, until about 75% done, then remove.
- Scrape bottom of pan, add more oil, add rice, and cook until translucent.
- Add boiling broth, cook at medium for 5 minutes.
- Lower heat, arrange chicken, red pepper, mussels, and any optional ingredients, and cook 15 minutes
- Cover, continue cooking on very low, about 5 more minutes.
- Note: you may need to move pan around so heat is even; you want the water to be absorbed and the bottom to begin to get crusty.
- Let stand about 5 minutes, discard mussels that do not open.
