Seafood and Chicken Paella With Artichoke Hearts

“I took the concept of this recipe from Tonkcats and built around ingredients that I had.... and things I definately wanted to put in the dish. I am not normally a "last minute" cooker, so the only way I was to survive this recipe was to have everything cleaned, chopped and diced in advance and put them in little baggies and have everything ready before I started cooking. This sure made clean up a snap!!!”

Directions

  1. Cut the red pepper, removing the seeds and slice into 4 sections. In the oven (475) or over the grill, roast the peppers until charred, about 12 - 15 minutes. Remove the pepper to a bowl and place a plate over it to steam the veggies for about 10 - 15 minutes. Remove the skin and cut the peppers into strips. Set aside in a baggie.
  2. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper. In two separate containers, add the marinade to the chicken and the prawns. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Heat about 1 T of the marinade in a skillet over medium high heat and cook the chicken until lightly brown. Remove the chicken to a plate.
  4. Add the sausage to the pan and cook over medium heat until well browned. Remove to the plate.
  5. Add a bit of the reserved marinade to the skillet and add the onions and garlic. Cook until soft. Stir in the rice and brown slightly.
  6. Remove the onions/rice mixture to a paella pan. Using part of the chicken stock, deglaze the skillet and add the liquid to the rice.
  7. Add the rest of the broth, tomatoes, saffron threads, chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until rice is tender.
  8. Cover the peas with warm water for about 10 minutes to bring them to room temperature. Drain.
  9. Add white wine, peas, scallops and artichoke hearts; toss gently.
  10. Drain shrimp; push into rice mixture along with the clams. Add the red pepper.
  11. Bake, covered in 350 oven for 15 - 20 minutes, or until shrimp are pink and clams are open.
  12. Garnish with parsley, lemon slices and parmesan cheese.
