Cooking instructions


In a bowl, combine the hot broth and the saffron. Let infuse for 5 minutes.


Heat oil on medium heat in a large non-stick pan. Cook the chicken thighs approximately 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Add salt and pepper, and set aside.


In the same pan, add the chorizo and cook for 2 minutes. Add the onion and pepper, stir, and continue cooking for a few minutes until they have softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Incorporate the tomatoes.


Add the TIPIAK Spiced Couscous and stir well. Add the shrimps, peas, chicken thighs and mussels, their opening upwards. Add salt, pepper and paprika. Incorporate the saffron broth. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the couscous and peas are cooked, all the liquid is absorbed, the chicken is warm and the mussels have opened. Taste and season accordingly. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes.


Drizzle with lemon juice, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.


You can replace 150 ml (2/3 cup) of broth with the same quantity of dry white wine.
