Is this Paella?

I have a box/mix of yellow rice and chicken thighs. I'd like to cook the chicken IN the rice mix as to flavor it up, any precautions? Brown the chicken first? Contamination risks? I've also got onion and tomatos to throw in....I was thinking a sort of paella...without the shrimp. Am I off?

Call it chicken with yellow rice.

I would brown the chicken in a pan, saute the onions then add the rice mix and liquid. Cook the dish covered, according to the mix directions - about 20-25 minutes. By then the chicken should be done. Check to be sure. Mix in chopped tomatoes just before serving.
