In small bowl, stir together chicken, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika until chicken is well coated in seasoning.
In large 9 or 10 in (23 or 25 cm) skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add seasoned chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add onion to skillet and cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and let cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in rice and, stirring occasionally, cook until lightly toasted, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir broth and diced tomatoes, along with their juices, into rice mixture.
Cover and cook without stirring for 12 minutes. Stir in chicken, cover, and continue to cook without stirring until most of the liquid has absorbed into rice, about another 5 to 8 minutes.
Scatter peas and shrimp over rice; cover again, and cook until shrimp is pink and opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and squeeze juice from half a lemon over skillet paella before sprinkling with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
