1 Package Chicken Thighs, cut up into chunks.
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
1 3/4 tsp. Cumin
1 3/4 tsp. Paprika
1 Red and Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Tomato, chopped
1 tsp. Turmeric
1 cup White Rice
2 cups Vegetable Stock, or Chicken Broth
2 cups spinach, chopped
1. Heat some oil or butter in a pan. Add the peppers and sauté until softened. Add chicken and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. It does not need to be fully cooked yet.
2. Add the uncooked rice and the spices: turmeric, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir until spices coat the vegetables and rice.
3. Pour chicken broth into the skillet. Add a little more salt. Cover and let simmer over low heat for 20min. Set a timer and do not take the lid off or stir while its cooking.
4. When the timer goes off, take the lid off and stir in the chopped spinach until spinach is wilted.
I use this as a base recipe and change up the spices to make a totally different meal. I have tried a Cajun version where I changed the spices to:
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
cayenne, if want to add heat.
