Easy Peasy Paella

  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp garlic infused extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 250 g chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Portuguese chicken seasoning
  • 250 g cooked brown rice (heat and serve packet)
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 400 g diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen peas


  1. Heat a large fry pan on a medium/high heat and add the oil. Once hot, add the capsicum and onion and saute for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add in the chicken and sprinkle with Portuguese seasoning. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chicken pieces are cooked.
  3. Add the rice, sweet chili sauce, worcestershire sauce and diced tomatoes. Stir thoroughly and cook for a further 2 minutes. Then add the peas and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can cook this further 5 or so minutes if you want to get the rice a bit more crispy on the bottom.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


  • Vegetarian Option: Use firm marinated tofu or your favourite plant based meat substitute here instead of chicken.
  • If cooking for kids who are sensitive to spice, use a lemon, herb & garlic seasoning, mild paprika or chicken seasoning without spice.
  • You can cook this a bit longer in the pan so the rice starts to brown and get a little crispy.
  • This dish will freeze well for up to 3 months.
