Paella - - - Easy Version

Paella is a Spanish dish made with combinations of rice, vegetables, meat, chicken and/or seafood. Hence, we Pinoys have created our own version of paella which differs in every part of the country.

This procedure that I've used, is I believed, the easiest way from the different recipes I've read online. In this version, I've precooked the rice with chicken broth powder that makes it more flavourful.

Try this easy paella recipe and enjoy!


  • 3 cups of cooked rice (cooked with chicken broth powder)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
