Firstly, to prevent panic, prepare everything prior to cooking.

To start, cooked the cleaned mussels in a covered pan and a little water
until they are open. Disgard any that are still closed. Reserve the cooking
liquer and add to the stock.

In a paella pan or large skillet, fry the chicken pieces to brown them. Remove and keep warm. Now add to the pan the minced onion, garlic and the peppers and let them cook for a few minutes. Now add the squid rings, tentacles and chopped tomatoes. Add a little more oil if required. Stir in the rice and allow to fry until the grains become a little opaque. Add the hot stock and stir. Add the browned chicken, bay leaf, saffron and paprika. Stir to mix well, then turn down the heat to minimum and leave alone - do not stir again, but occasionally shake the pan to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom. When the rice is almost cooked, add the mussels, prawns and peas, shake the pan again and cover. Turn of the heat and leave it to rest for 5 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges straight from the pan. Serves 6.
