Instructions

  1. 01

    Preheat your Kamado Joe grill to medium-high heat. Place the Karbon Steel Paella pan directly on the grill grates to heat up.

  2. 02

    Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, paprika, and dried thyme. Set them aside.

  3.  

    Ingredients

    • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 teaspoon Dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  4. 03

    Add olive oil to the hot Paella pan and spread it evenly. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until they are golden brown. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

  5.  

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  6. 04

    In the same pan, add the sliced onion and minced garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onions become translucent and the garlic is fragrant.

  7.  

    Ingredients

    • 1 Onion, thinly sliced
    • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  8. 05

    Add the sliced red and yellow bell peppers to the pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften.

  9.  

    Ingredients

    • 1 Red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 Yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  10. 06

    Stir in the Arborio rice and coat it well with the mixture in the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes to lightly toast the rice.

  11.  

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup Arborio rice
  12. 07

    Pour in the chicken broth, and if desired, crumble in the saffron threads for added flavor and color. Stir everything together and bring it to a simmer.

  13.  

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup Chicken broth
    • 1/2 teaspoon Saffron threads (optional)
  14. 08

    Place the chicken breasts on top of the rice mixture and scatter the cherry tomato halves around the pan. Cover the pan with a lid or aluminum foil.

  15.  

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup Cherry tomatoes, halved
  16. 09

    Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the chicken and rice cook for about 20-25 minutes or until the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid. Check occasionally to make sure the rice isn't sticking to the bottom of the pan. You can also add a little more chicken broth if needed.

  17. 10

    Once the rice is cooked, remove the pan from the grill. Allow it to rest for a few minutes before serving.

    Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve the one-pan chicken dish directly from the Kamado Joe Karbon Steel Paella pan.
