Let's Make It
Mix chicken broth and saffron until blended. Heat oil in paella pan or Dutch oven on medium heat. Add peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes and thyme; mix well. Cook 10 to 12 min. or until liquid is cooked off, stirring occasionally.
Add chicken and sausage; cook 15 min. or until chicken is done, stirring frequently. Stir in broth mixture; bring to boil, stirring occasionally.
Add rice; mix well. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 20 min. or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally to prevent rice from sticking to bottom of pan and burning. Remove from heat.
Stir in shrimp. Let stand, uncovered, 10 min. or until shrimp turn pink. Sprinkle with parsley.
Cooking Fresh Shrimp
As with most shellfish, fresh shrimp should be cooked briefly to avoid a tough rubbery texture. If precooking for a recipe, add the peeled and deveined shrimp to a pot of boiling water and cook just a few minutes, until they turn pink and begin to curl. Drain and rinse under cold water.
How to Devein Raw Shrimp
To devein raw shrimp, first remove the outer shell. Then make a lengthwise shallow cut on the outer curve of the shrimp to expose the black vein. Loosen the vein with the tip of a sharp knife, then pull with your fingers to remove.
Substitute 1/4 tsp. ground turmeric or annatto for the saffron.
