Chicken and Seafood Paella in a pan

Filipino-style Paella is the perfect example of Spanish influences in our cuisine. A byproduct of 300 years of colonization, it is a delicious fusion of our local tastes and cultural heritage.

Loaded with saffron-infused rice, chicken, chorizo, and choice of seafood, this hearty one-pan dish has become synonymous with our holiday celebrations and special occasions.

Tips on How to Make Paella:

  • Paella is traditionally cooked in a paellera which is a large, shallow cookware with handles on both sides. If you don’t have one, use a pan that’s wide but not too deep to allow moisture to evaporate quickly. Make sure it’s large enough to allow space for the rice to expand.
  • Other than a quick stir to coat the rice with the sauce, refrain from stirring and leave the paella covered and undisturbed as it cooks. If it is cooking more on one side than the other, just rotate the pan.
  • After you take the rice off the heat, allow it to rest, covered, for at least 10 minutes.
