Heat the mussels in the frying pan to open them, then set aside.

In the same pan, brown the bell peppers for 1 minute, set aside, then brown the chicken for 2 minutes on each side and remove.

Finally, brown the squid and shrimp and set aside.

Sweat the onion with a tablespoon of oil, then add the rice until it becomes transparent.

Add the bell pepper, squid, spices and chicken, and pour 1 1/2 cups of the poultry stock.

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 390°F.

After 15 minutes, add the shrimp, mussels and their juices along with the remaining poultry stock.

Lower the oven’s temperature to 350°F and put the pan back in for 10 more minutes.

Remove from oven and season to taste. Squeeze lemon juice.
