I made this for a dinner party, and it was a huge hit. After reading a bunch of reviews, I did a few things differently. I used a package of saffron rice but otherwise did the rice the same way. I actually made the rice earlier and reheated it before serving. I added frozen peas to it when reheating. When it came to the meat, I cooked the chorizo first and drained it on a lot of paper towels. So oily! I cooked the chicken, onion and red pepper in batches since there was so much of it. At the end I cooked the shrimp on it's own. When I served it, I put the rice down the center of a large platter and put the chicken, veggies and shrimp across the top pouring the cooking juices over the rice. There was a non-red meat eater at the table so I put the sausage at only one end of the platter. I made approximately a recipe and a half, and it made SO MUCH FOOD! It was really delicious, and everyone absolutely loved it which was very gratifying. It's a lot of work and a lot of last minute cooking so be prepared to be in the kitchen at the end. It's a very impressive looking dish to serve to company. It would be easy to tweak it anyway that you like.
