This is a bit of a cheating paella recipe. While still delicious, it won't come close to the traditional thing.

Heat oil in large skillet. Add chicken; cook on each side until golden brown and no longer pink in center. Remove from skillet. Add mushrooms, rice, onion and garlic to skillet; cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is golden brown. Combine water and bouillon in liquid measuring C.; stir into rice mixture. Add herb seasoning and saffron. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in peas and roasted pepper. Spoon rice mixture into 4 individual casserole dishes; top each with a chicken breast. Cover with foil; freeze for up to 4 months. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 1 hour or until heated through. Or, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on medium-high power, rearranging once. Microwave 8-10 minutes for 1 casserole and 13-16 minutes for 2 casseroles. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired, just before serving.
