   coat the rice with the oil. Add the stock and the saffron. Add the
   tomatoes. Replace the chicken pieces, cover and cook for 25 minutes. Add
   the shrimp and cook another 10 minutes. If the pot has gotten too dry, add

   open. Remove from the heat and serve from the casserole. Accompany with
   lemon wedges.
