Cooking: Paella

The husband made a DELICIOUS first attempt at this month's Real Simple recipe: Spanish chicken and rice.

Of course, it was gummy, as it always is when we attempt a paella-esque dish.

The USA Rice Federation via the Culinary Institute of America web site says:

"Cook paella uncovered and never stir after adding the liquid. Stirring will cause the kernels to lose their integrity and result in a gummy paella."

Recipes never say this, so we'll try it next time.
