Paprika Chicken & Rice

Paprika Chicken & Rice


bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
2 tsp. paprika, divided
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
garlic cloves, minced
red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 c. rice
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. heavy cream
2 c. baby spinach


  1. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and 1 tsp paprika. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sear chicken skin-side down until golden, about 6 to 8 minutes. Flip and cook 3 minutes more, then transfer to a plate skin-side up; set aside.
  2. Return pan to heat and heat remaining oil. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add peppers and cook until slightly tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and remaining paprika.  Add rice, chicken broth, and heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Return chicken to skillet and cover. Simmer until rice is tender and chicken is cooked through about 20 minutes.
  3. Fold in spinach until wilted and serve.
