    As far as I can tell, paella rice doesn't exist near me so I swapped in a medium grain rice. Took longer to absorb all the liquid than expected. Not sure if that was the rice or something else though. Canned tomato flavor seemed to take over the dish, didn't taste paprika or roasted red pepper at all.

    Delicious! We served it with salad and crusty bread and it was the best meal we’ve had in a while! Next time I think I’ll add chorizo too for an extra wow factor!

    Sooooooo good. Takes a while to absorb all the chicken stock I also substituted brown rice so took a while longer) but well worth the wait!
