  1. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan and brown the pieces of chicken.
  2. Add the onion, red pepper, and chorizo cubes. Let brown for one minute over low heat.
  3. Add the rice, sweat for one minute then add one and a half times the volume of rice in water. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil, add the shrimp and green beans, then bake in the oven (preheated to 150°C or 300°F) for 15 minutes.
  5. While the rice is cooking, roast the almonds in a teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt and chili powder. Wait until they turn a nice, rich color then place them on some paper towel to soak up the oil.
  6. After 15 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, add the chorizo slices and roasted almonds, and serve.

Chef's tips:

You can replace the green beans with another vegetable (peas, Brussels sprouts, etc.).
And the chicken can be replaced with rabbit.
Choose a premium rice (one that won't stick).
Be sure to serve the rice as soon as it comes out of the oven!

Why use a sauté pan?

Deeper than a frying pan - and just as versatile, a sauté pan allows you to cook generous portions and complete meals.
