Peel shrimp, leaving tails attached. Cover and refrigerate. Rinse mussels and clams; soak in cold water for 15 to 20 minutes.
Preheat a charcoal or gas grill with a greased grill rack and two grilling zones: direct grilling over medium-high heat (375°) and indirect grilling over medium heat (350°).
Pat chicken thighs dry; season with ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper. Grill 6 to 8 minutes over direct heat or until browned, turning halfway through. Cut partially cooked chicken into 1½-inch pieces; set aside.
Place a 12-inch cast iron skillet over direct heat. Add olive oil; heat 2 minutes. Add chorizo, onion, garlic, and paprika. Cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add rice; cook and stir 3 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, bay leaf, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and saffron. Top with red bell pepper. Cover with tight-fitting lid; cook 15 minutes.
Move skillet to indirect heat. Drain mussels and clams; add to rice mixture; stir. Cover and cook 6 minutes.
Stir in chicken, shrimp, peas, and lemon juice. Cover and cook 8 to 12 minutes or until mussels and clams open, chicken reaches 165° and shrimp reach 145°. Discard unopened mussels and clams.
Move skillet to direct heat; cook, uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture begins to sizzle. Remove bay leaf. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
