Season chicken joints well. Slice peppers in half and remove seeds, then slice each half into 6 strips. Slice onion into similar sized strips.

Drain sun dried tomatoes and cut into ½" pieces.

Heat 2 tbsps olive oil in a large flameproof casserole dish and when it is fairly hot add the chicken and brown until nutty golden on both sides. Remove to a plate linned with kitchen paper.

Add garlic, chorizo and tomatoes and toss for 1-2 mins. Stir in the rice and when the grains are well coated add stock, wine, tomato puree and paprika. Bring to a simmer.

Reduce heat and place chicken gently on top of everything. Sprinkle over herbs, olives, and onions. Cover and cook over a very low heat for 50 mins - 1 hour, until rice is cooked, (or cook in oven 180 C gas 4 for 1 hour).
