Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

Traditional paella is cooked for hours. This version is mostly done in the oven, so no babysitting the paella :-) Also, it traditionally has peas (I use broccoli or asparagus as I don't like peas), saffron (you may substitute turmeric if you don't have saffron) and white rice (I use brown). for the chicken, you can use pre-cooked diced breast meat instead of raw boneless/skinless breast. Salt & pepper to taste.

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.
