Transfer to 17-inch paella pan. Add 4 cups of chicken stock and the saffron. Stir to evenly distribute rice, vegetables, and saffron.

Add chicken and chorizo.

Place paella pan in oven on lower shelf. If using a gas stove, place on oven floor.

Bring to a boil, and then cook for another 10-15 minutes.

Remove paella from oven and add all of the seafood.

Add more chicken stock to ensure shellfish steam.

Place in oven for another 15-20 minutes until rice is done.
