Chicken and Chorizo Paella

Today I am going to be sharing with you one of my favourite dishes! It may not be the lowest of calorie foods, however as you are making it yourself, you can see exactly what is going into it. This is super easy and is a one pot dish (so less cleaning up yay)! The chorizo makes the dish taste so delicious and makes you feel like you are in Spain sitting by the beach. If you want to make this more calorie friendly, you could reduce the amount of rice used (and water) as this is a large portion of the calories. Or you could experiment with using cauliflower rice instead (using no stock & water at all).
