One Pot Spanish Chicken and Rice

With the weather still away from warmer days and nights and blissfully dreaming of the summer months, I decided to cheer us all up with a Spanish inspired dish.

Counting down the days for when Leanora and I can chase one another in the summer sun on sandy beaches and enjoy great food and a cocktail or two for Mumma what better way to pass those days or eat are days a with a One Pot Spanish Chicken and Rice meal. 

I have jazzed it up, to with a some chorizo to give it a little extra kick and to help give it that real Spanish taste, this one pot dish takes no real effort and can have you sitting with friends and family and catching up in great company whilst is cooks away once in the oven. 

1 tablespoon olive oil
8 bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed

  • 1 teaspoon of all purpose seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1  green pepper chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 chorizo sliced
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups of vegetable chicken broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 2 large handfuls of frozen peas

I had mine on my plate as Leanora is not a fan - 1 cup olives sliced

1. Pre heat your oven 185/365f/gas mark 5. Turn on your hob and heat your oil over on a medium   high heat. Clean your chicken and season with your all purpose seasoning.  Brown the chicken until golden brown 5-6 minutes on each side and then place on a tray to one side. 

2. pop in your chopped peppers and onion and cook until softened for a few minutes, don't forget to give it a good stir so that all are evenly cooked. whack in your garlic until lightly browned. Add your rice and give a good stir , add your stock, tins of chopped tomatoes, paprika, black pepper, sliced chorizo and frozen peas. Give it a good stir so all is nice mixed together. 

3. Pop your chicken on top of it all, cover you oven proof pot with its lid and place in the middle tray in the oven and leave for 45 minutes. Or until the rice has absorbed all the fragrant liquid and becomes nice and fluffy. 

4. Viola plate up serve with a nice Spanish wine for the adults, juice/water for the little people. garnish with your olives and enjoy ladies and gents.
