Paella, Food for a Crowd.

Chicken Paella over a wood fire
I think one of the best ways to feed a crowd is to make a Paella, the national dish of Spain and the ultimate one-pan meal. This simple Paella was cooked the traditional way over a open wood fire which imparted a soft, smoky flavor to the dish.  I used just a few basic ingredients including arborio rice, chicken, sausage, onions, garlic, tomato, white wine and ground paprika.  A couple of glasses of wine sitting next to the warm fire and its done. The cooking pan is also the serving pan which makes the clean up quick and easy. The crowd loved it and I think I will make again soon.
