Prepare the chicken stock.
Let the onion fry in the olive oil in a pan over low heat. Add the rice and cook for 2 minutes until the rice seems milky. Pour in the chicken stock, sherry, orange juice and zest, stir and bring to the boil over medium heat. When the mixture boils, lower the flame, stir a second time, cover the pan and keep on cooking for about 8-10 minutes or until the cooking juice is well reduced. Switch off the gas, season to taste with salt, add the butter (if you want), stir, and let all rest for 5 minutes. Serve after separating rice grains with a fork.
