  1. Rinse the rice in a colander under a cold running tap until the water runs clear
  2. In a large pot, heat half of the oil and brown the chicken pieces, remove and reserve in a warm place
  3. Add the onions and garlic, fry until soft and translucent
  4. Add the remaining oil and the rice and stir-fry for a few minutes so that the rice is well coated with oil
  5. Add the tomato purée, turmeric, paprika, chicken stock and season to taste with salt and pepper
  6. Bring to the boil, add the chicken, chorizo and peppers, cover and simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes so most of the moisture is absorbed into the rice
  7. Add the olives and mix well
