This is a recipe my mom created and has made for our family since I was young. It is a one pot recipe that makes a simple yet hearty meal. The combination of saffron, rice, meat, and vegetables creates a colorful, beautiful, and flavorful dish. It is a wonderful meal to prepare when you have friends and family over because it feeds a lot of people from one pot.
TIP: Have a bottle of olive oil on hand. If the paella pan looks dry to you while cooking the chicken and other ingredients on the stovetop, add a little bit of olive oil. And heat the broth. If you add room temperature broth to the rice mixture, it will slow the cooking down significantly. I also heat the white wine to get the most flavor out of the saffron.
