[p]After about another 20 mins with a dome temp of 350, good eats! Thanks everyone for the great tips on pans and the differant reciepes, big hit with the family. However it said "feeds four", I think it would feed 8 fat guys like myself! Definately a keeper.[p]

    That looks awfully darned good to me!!....Great job!....Magnifico....My wife Karen is an ace at cooking paella....and has been trained by some great Miami chefs.....And that looks as good as any........[p]I don't know if you needed to brown the chicken the way yout did....but what the heck?....It all worked out and that's all that counts....Karen starts hers off in the pan just prior to adding all the other goodies.....[p]But great job...and I'm one fat guy that would have enjoyed eating it with you!![p]Ed McLean

    Celtic Wolf,
    I'm fighting it so hard! I was at a bookstore last night and right at the front door they had a big book about paella. It was like a sign!
