Supermarket Paella

From Delia Smith's How to Cheat at Cooking.

1 large Spanish onion, chopped small
1 clove of garlic, crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 packet of frozen peas, cooked and drained
1 can red peppers, drained and chopped
1 can Spanish rice
8 oz fresh peeled prawns, thawed
Meat from 2 cooked chicken portions, chopped
1 can grilling mushrooms, drained and chopped

In a large frying pan, fry the onion and garlic in the oil for about 15 mins. The stir in the rice, peas, peppers, prawns, chicken meat and musrooms and heat through, stirring most of the time.

I don't think you can get tins of "Spanish" rice any more, but Uncle Ben may have something similar. You could use fresh mushrooms and red peppers, but chop them small and fry them with the onion.
