  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy based frying pan or paella pan and cook the chorizo, onions and chicken over a moderately high heat for 5 minutes until the onions are soft and the chicken is cooked through, with no pink showing. Add the peppers, smoked paprika and saffron and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until beginning to soften.
  2. Add the prawns and heat through, stirring for 1 minute, then beat the eggs with the parsley and pour over the ingredients in the pan and cook over a moderate heat for 5 minutes until the base is set. Meanwhile preheat the grill and cook under a preheated grill for 4-5 minutes until the top is set and golden. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves and cut into wedges to serve and serve with a simply dressed green salad.
