Notes and Tips

Here are some tips and tricks to prepare the perfect Chicken Fideuá:

Use a suitable type of short noodle: It is important to use a type of short noodle that is suitable for the recipe. This will ensure that the texture of the dish is perfect.

Cook the vegetables until they are golden: It is important to cook the vegetables until they are golden and soft, which will give them a more intense flavor and aroma. But be careful that if they cook too fast, they will not reach their full flavor.

Don't add too much chicken broth: It is important not to add too much chicken broth, as this can make the Fideuá become too liquid. The amount of broth should be enough for the noodles to cook, but not so large as to make the dish too liquid.
