Spanish Chicken Risotto

I originally uploaded this recipe a few months ago and I have just made it for the first time since.  I have tweaked the steps and added chorizo and I was so blown away with the result.  I loved it before and now it will have to become a regular.  So much flavour and so easy.  If you want it as a looser dish then add more water but I like it to be quite thick.  Also to make this dish really sing only use a good quality smoked paprika.  I seriously can't believe the difference.  This one will win over even the harshest critics.
