One Pan Spanish Chicken and Rice |

I’m thinking a little bit outside of the box this week and so far I’m loving the out-of-the-box dishes that are happening. I love chicken and rice together and a couple of days ago I was just craving a good ol’ one pan/one pot chicken and rice, only I really wanted to step up the flavor profile.

I’ve been making my ultra-popular one pot lemon herb chicken and rice for a couple of years now and love how easy it is to make with just a few ingredients I almost always have on hand. This week, I took that same one pan chicken and rice idea and put a fun, delicious new twist on it with some big, bold, Spanish seasonings and you guys…. this might even be better than that lemon herb chicken dish. So if you’ve tried that and love it, you are going to go crazy for this Spanish chicken and rice version.

There is one ingredient you mayyyy not recognize and it’s coriander. If you haven’t cooked with coriander, it’s kind of similar to cumin. I use it occassionally and really love the depth it gives to the flavor of dishes. It’s easy to find in the spice section of any grocery store, but if you have everything but the coriander and don’t want to make a special trip to the store just for one ingredient, you can actually use an equal amount of cumin as a pretty great substitute! If you try this dish, I would love to hear what you think of the flavors so don’t be shy and make sure to leave a comment or send me an email or message!!

“Great recipe. the flavors were great and the meat was juicy (i was worried it wouldn’t be). The spice was just the right amount. It seemed like a ton of spice so I was worried it would be too hot for me, but it wasn’t at all.” – Sarah

Author Tiffany


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, OR 6 chicken thighs
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 2 1/4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lemon
  • chopped cilantro or 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 (see note)
  • 1/4 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 with 2 tablespoons 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 1 tablespoon of 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)
  • Add rice, chicken broth, juice from 1/2 of the lemon, and remaining seasoning mix and stir to combine. Return chicken to the pan on top of the rice. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes until liquid is absorbed, rice is tender, and chicken is cooked through.
  • Garnish with lemon slices and freshly chopped cilantro or parsley and serve immediately.


*Coriander is found in the spice section of any typical grocery store. In a pinch, cumin can be used as a substitute.

hey girl- this looks so tasty!

    Wonderful recipe. Cooked just as directed, used meyer lemons cause that’s what I had on hand. Delicious and everyone said ‘wow’ when I put the cast iron on the table. I did crank the heat and removed the lid at the end to get some crusty rice on the bottom.

Love the one skillet meals especially how they look so inviting on the stovetop or table. Family just can’t wait to dig in and the smells!!!!!-Laurel Bledsoe

This was so good! I didn’t have coriander, so doubled up on the cumin…also couldn’t find my paprika so I did without that-and it was still amazing! My husband, 1 and 2 year old all loved it as well. I did add a bit more rice and chicken broth to make it go further. Thanks so much for this recipe!!

    “This was amazing, I did not use any of the ingredients listed or anything, so made a totally different dish, thought I would comment anyway”

      This is my favorite part of READING ONLINE RECIPE COMMENTS.



Bake at what temperature?

    This is cooked on the stovetop (Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes).

5 stars
Made this for dinner and husband and daughter begged to have it on a regular basis!! We all loved it, and I especially loved how simple it was to make and it’s only one pot! Thank you Tiffany for the awesome recipe!!

I tried this tonight. I added to the recipe corn and kidney beans(would have preferred black but didn’t have them). It was so delicious! Next time I’m adding canned tomatoes, and serving it with sour cream.

5 stars
Excellent flavors! By the time the rice was done, the chicken was overdone. Next time I will keep an eye on the chicken and remove it while the rice finishes.

5 stars
Really enjoyed this dish. The seasoning was spot on. I did add chopped onion, a can of diced tomatoes with jalapeños, a cup of frozen corn and chicken thighs because it just seemed to go with the theme. Iused limes in place of the lemons cause I had them on hand. Thanks for an awesome one pan great tasting meal!

4 stars
what kind of skillet do you recommend? i used stainless steal because i wasn’t up for the task of cleaning a cast iron, and i avoid Teflon at all costs. Amazing recipe all around, quick easy and flavorful!

    Hi Sarah – I use a cast iron skillet and love it!

5 stars
Oh, how delicious, I put five

This is the second recipe of yours I’ve made and man! 2 for 2! I loved the flavors and the family gobbled it up too! Thanks so much and I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes. I’ve got a list going! 😊

I am beyond thrilled with this recipe! To make something so good in thirty minutes after a long night at work…from the bottom of my heart and sore sore feet thank you!!!

Absolutely delicious !

Do you have the nutritional facts on this recipe?

    Hi Wade – My Fitness Pal has a great tool that will provide nutritional facts for any recipe online by providing a link to the recipe from their app.

One of my favorite dishes. I favor using chicken thighs for their flavor and will add onion cause I like onions and corn added to the pan or served on the side. The spices are spot on and it’s easy and quick to put together. So good.

5 stars
Forgot the 5 stars!

3 stars
The cooking method in this recipe goes against the way rice should ve cooked. It leaves the rice mushy and wet espicaially where the rice lays undeneath the chicken. I recommend cooking the rice with no lid until water has evaporated until it just skims the top of the rice then place chicken on top then pyt on the lid and cook another 20 minutes. Take off heat, let sit for 5 minutes., take off lid and let steam come off before serving

5 stars
I just made this dish yesterday….I loved it, my kids loved it and the presentation on the plate was so pretty. This is a keeper!!

Awesome recipe! My whole family loves it and can never get enough.

Made this for dinner last evening and it was a huge hit. I roasted the Spanish seasoning mix for a minute to bring out the flavors even more. Will definitely make this again!

    Yay I am so glad to hear that! Thanks for your sweet message Gayle!

Really beautiful flavours. Made this tonight with ease. I’m pretty certain I am going to be making all your recipes by the end of the month. Keep it up xx

Just made this a couple of nights ago. Had leftovers tonight! The flavors did NOT disappoint!! YUMMMMM!!!

This recipe was delicious and so easy to make! My Husband and I loved it. Thank you so much!

5 stars
So easy and awesome! Has become that recipe I make for my family every few weeks

5 stars
This was amazing! My entire (3/5 of them are picky) family loved it. Will need to double it next time!

Hoping to make this tonight! What temp do you bake it at?


what temp? 375 degrees?

    Hi William – continue cooking on medium heat on the stovetop after browning the chicken breasts.

It says white rice which rice is that minute? LOng grain? I have instant brown and ling grain brown at home will either work?

    Hi Ember – the recipe calls for uncooked white rice, but you could sub out different types of rice if desired. I would not recommend instant or minute rice unless you cook the rice separately from the chicken.

5 stars
Great recipe! Nice flavors and really easy. I added beans and tomatoes as well as shredded cheese in the last two minutes and then topped with sour cream and picante.

5 stars
Absolutely delicious! Made it over a week ago and enjoyed with my man who also commented on the good combination of seasoning.

5 stars
Thanks for a wonderful recipe! My family LOVES It. I make it at least once a moNth, if not more.

just a tip I learned,,,,any cooked rice dish is more flavourful if you “toast” the rice. in this recipe, after frying the chicken, put the rice in the pan alone without liquid. you may need to add 1 tbsp oil as the the rice needs to be coated and stir the rice constantly until it turns a light golden color, 3-4 minutes, and then proceed with adding liquid. this is a trick i learned from a mexican friend and it is how they get their flavor in mexican restaurant rice. use a high smoke point oil such as peanut. on a related note, never cook with sesame oil, as it turns bitter when heated too much…only add it at the last minute for its flavor.

I just Made this and only time will tell but I have a few questions. Is this baked or skillet cooked? What temperature? I was so confused.

    Hi Jackie – this is skillet cooked on medium heat. sorry for the confusion.

5 stars
Great recipe. the flavors were great and the meat was juicy (i was worried it wouldn’t be). The spice was just the right amount. It seemed like a ton of spice so I was worried it would be too hot for me, but it wasn’t at all. i used zatarain’s long grain rice (my favorite rice for cooking). The only issue i had with this’s not good as lefto-overs. It dried out a lot. But, it was wonderful when it was fresh!

Do you use boneless, skinless chicken thighs?

I cant eat rice, so I altered the recipe a bit to use riced cauliflower. Instead, I cooked the chicken longer to cook it through. I then seasoned the cauliflower directly because I didn’t need the chicken stock, sautéed it in some olive oil with the seasonings and added the chicken to it then. It was so good! I cant imagine how the real recipe tastes with actual rice. Thank you!!

    Sounds delish as well! 🙂

Can anyone who has tried this recipe tell me if the chicken cooks properly on the stovetop? I have never cooked chicken this way.

5 stars
Delicious and easy to make! my (picky eater) son requested this for his birthday dinner. thanks.

    Gotta love when you get past a picky eater’s wall! 😉

5 stars
Oh My god. This was heaven in a skillet. After an exhausting day, I printed out this recipe and gave it to my husband and ordered him to make it. I think he spiced it up with some hot chili powder. But the rice! Strongly rec the thighs for more flavor.

I gave it a name – lazy man’s paella (because he’d never have enough patience for paella!). But the spices gave it that familiar flavor. Thank you!!!

    Haha! What a nice husband 😉 Happy to hear that you guys loved this recipe!

Awesone recipe! I like to surprIse my wife and cook dinner and this Recipe hit it out of the park. Quick and easy dinner, and clean was just as easy. Thank you posting, will be cooking this again and again.

    This is so great! Happy to hear that you guys loved this dish! She’s lucky! 😉 Thanks for sharing!

ThiS was delicious! I used 2 lbs chicken tenders, what i had on hand. Worked out great! We recently Purchased some smoked paprika, and it is good! Glad your recipe called for it. Thank you!

    So happy that you loved it!!

5 stars
This is so delicious!! I’ve made it with thighs twice now and it’s become a favorite in our household!

    SO happy that you love this recipe enough to make it multiple times!! Thanks for sharing, Lilly!

I can’t quite tell from your pictures, if using chicken thighs, are you using skinless boneless or skin on?

    Hi Ashley- skinless, boneless! 🙂


    Hopefully it still turned out great for you! 🙂

My chicken doesnt loOK crispy like yours. I used skinless boneless Thighs and When i Put the chicken back in with the rice and chicken stock, the “crispy”
LooK went away. Any thoughTs? Love this recIpe either way.

    Hi Vicky- I would suggest browning it longer in the pan? A cast iron pan can make a big difference.

5 stars
Delicious recipe. I used a whole chicken that I roasted in the oven and did the spice BLEND with butter and RUbbed in all over the chicken And under The skin. So FLAVORFUL And tender. I cooked The Rice in a separate pot with The Same spices and Served it all with lemon slices and BROCCOLINI on the Side. Excellent dinner anytime!

5 stars
This is so good! I was craving a one pot chicken and rice recipe & wanted something new and exciting! This recipe is amazing! So easy to make and full of flavor. I shared with co workers and they all wanted the recipe. Will make over and over, especially since chicken is the only medically allowable meat I can eat!

    Great job, Rhonda! I am super excited to hear that you were able to satisfy your craving! 😉 Thanks for your feedback!

5 stars
pretty good! I chopped up a half an onion and 1 red bell pepper that I cooked up in the pan before adding the chicken broth and rice. Smells looks and is delicious.

    Great job, Carl! Sounds like you set yourself up for success! 🙂

I made this for dinner a few nights ago. I added a handful of cherry tomatoes cut in half and a handful of frozen peas in the last five minutes of cooking, other than that I followed the rest of the recipe precisely. It was excellent. This will be a favorite.

    Great job, Kay! Those are both awesome ideas. Sounds like you definitely set yourself up for success with this one!

The recipe is great but was I supposed to improvise on the temperature prior to covering because the rice on the bottom of the skillet was burnt or was it supposed to be stirred at some point?

    It typically does not need to be stirred- I am not positive what happened with yours as I have not had that issue myself! Next time keep an eye on the rice and chicken for doneness… perhaps it just required a little less time for you than stated!

Can you use an electric skillet for this dish

    You can but I’d say the best results come from using a cast iron skillet for this recipe!

Just made this & it is absolutely delicious!

    Fantastic! Thanks for your feedback, Marilyn!

This recipe is simple yet very tasty! I will definitely make this many times. love the spice combination and the addition of the lemon.

Best Spanish Rice I’ve ever tried. I don’t bookmark many recipes anymore, but the spice mixture is spot on. My wife loved it and she doesn’t suffer my MEDIOCRE Cooking.

4 stars
The seasoning mix is wondefful. I thought itd be too spicy fory 8 yr old but she loved it. I used brown rice instead of white. I didnt know you need more water to cook brown rice so it Turned out semi crunchy. Just have to add more water next time. I chopped some Fresh greens from the garDen. Looked pleasant and added A more healthy appeal.

    Great job, Lisa!! I am excited to hear that your 8 year old enjoyed this dish as well! Thanks for sharing your feedback!

4 stars
Loved the recipE, but i didnt make it as is. I didnt have any chili powder, so I also doubled up on the cumin. After I browned the chicken in the pan, i tossed in a chopped up bell pepper and let it soften. Then, i added two tablespoons of tomato paste and the rice, and let it cook for a few MINUTES while constantly stirring. After adding the water, if put two packs of GoYa SaZon (one yellow and one with tomato and cilantro), dried minced garlic, dried minced onions, and 2 chicken BOUILLON cubes. Put the chicken back in and let it cook. Also, i used 2 cups of rice And used 2 3/4 cups of water since i used 12 pieces of chicken. Cant wait to make this again! Thank you for livening up our cHiCken and rice dinner. 🙂

    Thank you for your input!

Any cook time recommendations on bone-in chicken thighs? Not sure if i want to de-bone

    You will definitely need extra time- start with an additional 10 minutes and go from there!

Do americans not realise that coriander == cilantro? It’s what the rest of the world calls cilantro. Anyway. Recipe is delicious!

    In the US, coriander=the seeds, and cilantro=the greens.

What is the sodium content for each serving? I will not be adding any salt.

Thank you for this delicious recipe tiffany! I love spanish rice. I added 1 extra cup of rice, a large can of diced stewed tomatoes (with liquid) and a red pepper diced in small pieces. I adjusted the amount of spices you listed just to cover the added INGREDIENTs. It was fantastic for dinner and even better the next day for lunch. My new go-to recipe when i next crave Spanish Rice

This recipe was so easy! Some days im dont feel like whIpping up an EXHAUSTING recipe but this one was so SEAMLESS. Didnt have All the seasonings so i just used what i had and it still came out amazing. I may have Went hEavy on the lemon in tHe rice (it was big & i only put half) – i liked the twist it gave but my Husband found the LEMon flavor too stronG. Less may be more your first time trying this recipe.

    Awesome job! I am glad to hear that your version came out delicious as well!

5 stars
Currently making this as i tYpe, it smElls amazing but i was wondering if its freezable?

    Hi Katie! Some rice dishes are difficult to do as a freezer meal, and unfortunately I haven’t tried freezing this one myself so I can’t say for sure. I’d love to hear the outcome if you do give it a try tho!

Extremely flavorful. Easily became one of my families favorite recipes. I think this is one of the best online chicken reciceps ever. Thanks Tiffany

    Best compliment ever! Thanks, Lisa! I am glad to hear that you and your family all enjoyed this recipe so much. Thanks for your feedback 🙂

Im not sure what i did wrong. The rice came out delicious but chicken wasnt fully cooked. I didnt use a skillet i used a regular cast iron pot. Next time will try it all in a skillet.

    Not sure what went wrong for you- I haven’t had that issue before! Sorry to hear that, May!

Hey!! Recipe looks delish, I’m starting to make it now and just realized I have no lemon. Do you think it would be ok without?

    Darn it! You’ll probably be ok although the addition of the lemon is one of my favorite parts!

i dont have a lid for my cast iron skillet. Can i cover with foil or does it need a supert tight fit?

    That should be fine!

Had a lot of grease it didn’t say to drain oil after cooking the chicken or to use skinless I got a lot of grease I was spooning off during the cooking method, haven’t tasted yet will let you know.

5 stars
This was such an easy and delicious recipe. I used chicken thighs that hadn’t defrosted totally yet so I just seared them for a bit longer, added a little bit more broth, and extended the cooking time by 5 minutes. It was perfect.

    Awesome job, Holly!! Glad to hear that you enjoyed this recipe and had such great success with using half defrosted chicken thighs! Thanks for sharing.

5 stars
Nice flavor. NOt over powering. Might try adding diced tomatoes Next time. I reCommend keeping an eye on the chicken. Depending on the breast size, time might be too long. My chicken was not as juicy. My fault. Leftover chicken made a nice taco lunch. Thank you.

    Thanks for your feedback, Christine! Happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe.

4 stars
I give this a 4 for the Yummy flavor and texture this dish gives…although there’s too much seasoning used for the rice. Coming from a spanish family we enjoy the natural flavor of the rice And we like the flavors to accent the rIce. I recommend maybe using no more than 1/4 of the remaining seasoning for the rice and combine WITH SAFFRON. If no saffron is available then replace with a small portion of Sazon. Also with the ricei would double the quantity of rice. 1 cup was not enough to serve four people.

    Thanks for sharing your input, Alyssa!

A delicious and easy recipe the whole family loves. I add vegetables – red peppers, mushrooms and peas and it is a perfect one pot meal

    Nice job, Penny! Thanks for sharing!

Love this but you do realise coriander is just the British name for cilantro? It’s the same plant! Your coriander is probably just ground cilantro (we call it ground dried coriander in Britain)

5 stars
DelicIous! I added a half can oF rotel mexican style tomatoes. ThIs has become a staple in our home!

    Yum!! Thanks for sharing

5 stars
I sauteed the rice with red bell peppers, the whites of 3 green onions, and 2 cloves of garlic before adding broth. Because I didn’t have lemons, I used lime, and garnished with green portion of onion. Delicious!!!

    Sounds like you did a great job!

Just made tHis anD wow! So much flaVour! Be warNed, you will deFinitely go back for SecoNds and probably thirds.question: i want to double thiS recipe but Only the rice and spice/sauce (not the chicken) – Will it still turn oUt as good?

    I think more spice would be fine- I can’t say for sure though as I haven’t done that myself!

thank you for sharing😍

We all enjoyed the seasoningBlen, the ease of one pan, and that it was quick. However, the chicken itself was pretty plain, we doused it with some Salsa and sour cream to give it more flavor. I’ll try the recipe again, but will marinate the chicken with some oil, lemon juice, and the spices several hours before cooking.

    That was supposed to day seasoning blend.

      *say. Man i’m having typing problems today!

    Thanks for your input, Kathy!

Would make this eveRy night if I could !

5 stars
The flavors in this dish were amazing!! My boyfriend finished off the whole pan even though we were supposed to have leftovers!

i made 1.5x the spice mix. Chopped up half a green pepper, half an orange pepper, half an onion, 6 cloves of garlic, scallions, and one tomato. i sauteed this up with a bit of the spice mix. removed it from the pan then continued with the recipe. i added it back in at the end after the rice and chicken were done cooking. it was amazing!

    Dang it about the leftovers- they’re my fav! LOL. Happy to hear this recipe was enjoyed!

5 stars
I used chicken thighs with bone and skin, provided good flavor but made a little greasy so best to use skinless. I was worried it’d be too spicy but actually wasn’t quite spicy enough, maybe because some of my spices weren’t as fresh as would be ideal. Overall the family really enjoyed!

    Happy to hear your family enjoyed this recipe, Jeff!

This was delicious! I doubled up THE rice, used thighs, and waited until most of the liquid had evaporated to add the chicken but wow! It was still DELICIOus. I also added black beans and onions as others SUGGESTED and made it in a caldero for the excess rice. Wow. just wow. I’ll be back

    That sounds super delicious!! Awesome job. Thank you for sharing!

5 stars
we’ve made this several times and loved it. I add HALVed Brussel sprouts to add a green vegetable

    Oh yum! I bet that addition is delicious. Thanks for sharing!

5 stars

The seasonings wEre on point. I added onions, Minced garlic, bell peppers. AdDed sliced spicy chicken sausage and roasted potatoes BECAUSE I only had 4 chicken yhighs to beef up The Meal. It worked out great. I am going try more recipes!

    That sounds yummy!

Amazing recipe! I changed it up a bit and since I did not hav garlic powder. I added herbs of the provence instead of italian seasoning, since i did not have that in hand and it turned out wonderful! I would ease up on the lemon, though. i found that the juice from 1/2 a big lemon made the rice a bit too sour. so happy with the ease of this recipe and the little amount of dishes I had to wash afterwards!

    Thanks for sharing, Mia! Awesome job using what you had on hand.

5 stars
Great dish for Sunday after church. The family loves it
Thank you very much!!!

Can i add spanish olives to it?

5 stars
Made this last night, follOwed the receipt exactly and it was fantastic. Chicken was juicy, full of flavour but with a subtle bite to it. The rice was wonderful with the addition of the spices and lemon. Great for summer or winter. Going to try this again on a larger scale in a paella pan for the next BBQ.

    Aah, autocorrect!
    Followed the RECIPE………🤦‍♂️

    So happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe so much!! Thanks, Duncan!
