1. Season chicken with soy sauce and pepper. Set aside. Boil halaan and tahong until shells are open. Remove tahong meat from shells. Reserve 1/3 cup broth.

3. Add tahong meat and halaan, green peas, bell pepper, rice, and malagkit rice. Cook for 3 minutes. Top with egg slices before serving.

Chef’s Tip:

For a more flavorful paella, allow the chorizo to realease its fat during sautéing. The chorizo fat contains a lot of flavor that will mix with the rice.
