"A twist on the classic paella, with lots of spring herbs.
Spanish rice is rounded and short; it absorbs liquid very well, and it stays relatively firm during cooking.

Heat oven to 180C. Season the chicken thighs well and then dust all over with the flour. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a paella pan or large, deep frying pan. Fry the thighs until golden brown all over, then transfer to a shallow a plate and reserve.
Add the remaining oil, onions and garlic, and fry very gently until soft, about 10-15 mins. Stir in the rice, paprika, saffron and lemon zest, then add the stock, the chicken and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 20 mins on a medium heat until the rice is nearly cooked.
Add the peas, and juice of 1 lemon and keep cooking until the rice is just cooked through, along with the veg. Stir through the herbs and as much of the remaining lemon juice as it needs. Correct the seasoning, turn of the heat and cover for 5 mins to let everything settle before serving.
