2 Sunshine Chicken & Chorizo Paella

Heat a large, wide-based pan with a matching lid (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the chorizo and cook for 1 min, then add the chicken and cook for 1 min further

Chop the olives roughly

Dissolve the stock cube[s] with 350ml [700ml] boiled water
