Paella for Ten
Recipe Source: http://bitten.blogs.nytimes...
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 chicken thighs, each cut into 4 or more pieces
1 Italian sausage, cut up
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 large onion, chopped
1 pound snow peas
3 cups short-grain white rice
6 plum tomatoes
6 to 10 oysters, cut in half if large
1. Put the oil in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken pieces and sausage, sprinkling with salt and pepper. Remove to a plate.
2. Lower the heat a bit and add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the snow peas and cook a minute over medium-high heat.
3. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until glossy, 2 or 3 minutes. Stir in the saffron, tomatoes, and oysters; return the chicken and sausage to the mix.
4. Add 5 cups water (remember: very large skillet!), stir to mix, and bring to a boil. Simmer — you want bubbles, but not furious ones — undisturbed, until the rice is cooked, adding a little more water if necessary. Serve hot or warm.
