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 !!!

I'm also confused as i thought i was only allowed 100g of chicken? im currently on the 800kcal, but want to get to 1,200kcal sooner. I'm stuck at home 24/7, and upstairs waiting to…
