  1. Heat the olive oil in a wide bottomed saucepan, and sweat the onion and garlic for 5 minutes, until softened, remove from the pan then add the chicken, increase the heat slightly and cook until browned, 2 minutes.
  2. Return the onion to the pan and add the paprika, cayenne and tomato puree to the pan and cook, constantly stirring, for 2 minutes. Next, add the tomato, rice and ¾ of the stock. Bring to the boil, and bubble for 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the rice looks dry, add a splash more of the stock. Add the prawns and cook for a final 5 minutes. Taste and check for seasoning.
  3. Remove from the heat and serve immediately with the parsley and lemon wedges.
