Making Chicken and Bean Weeknight Paella for eight people

I am making Chicken and Bean Weeknight Paella for eight people tomorrow. Do I need to double all the ingredients from the recipe for 4, including doubling the chicken broth? I am considering using a 14" ScanPan versus the recommended 12" pan. What would be the increase in ingredients to align with the larger pan size?

  • Hi Konstantin - We apologize for not answering your question sooner. I'm sure you've already made this, but this recipe is quite particular in terms of it's balance of ingredients to surface area so we would not recommend doubling unless you are going to do it in two separate 12-inch pans side-by-side. Best, The Milk Street Team

  • Thank you for your reply! I ended up using a 14" pan to slightly expand the surface area. I proportionately increased the ingredients slightly. I also layered in shrimp that I sautéed separately in thr last three minutes.

    It turned out great. Excellent recipe, thanks!
