Spanish chicken

For those that asked for recipe …

( I thought I’d share recipe again as the other one got taken down ?!?.. … my Instagram seems to be playing up or something!!!!?.. )


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts OR 6 boneless & skinless chicken thighs

Spray frylight or olive oil

2x portions @carbxworld rice

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 lemon

chopped parsley - for garnish

Spanish seasoning mix

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon coriander

¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning

In a small bowl whisk together all ingredients for the Spanish seasoning mix. Divide in half and set aside. Cut the lemon in half, then thinly slice one half - for garnish - and reserve the other half for juicing later in the recipe.

Place chicken in a medium bowl. Drizzle / spray with oil, then toss to coat well. Use half of the prepared seasoning mix to rub on both sides of each piece of chicken.

Drizzle a large skillet with remaining oil and bring to medium heat. Cook chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned. Transfer to a plate. (It won't be cooked through at this point)

Put rice, chicken broth, juice from 1/2 of the lemon, and remaining seasoning mix into an ovenproof dish and stir to combine. Add chicken to the on top of the rice. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes at 180 until tender, and chicken is cooked through.

Garnish with lemon slices and freshly chopped cilantro or parsley and serve immediately.

It’s so good !!!
