Mexican Style One Pot Chicken and Rice

One Pot Chicken and Rice

I’m a big chicken and rice fan. Especially a healthy dinner recipe like this that you can toss into one pot and let it go. No worry that you’ll be cleaning up for the rest of the night…just one pot to clean and then you’re good to go! This recipe substitutes the rice for a healthier alternative, cauliflower rice. The taste is still delicious, but it’s lighter so you won’t feel weighed down or bloated after you’re done indulging!

One Pot Chicken and "Rice" Ingredients

First I seasoned the chicken thighs so I could sear them off. I sprinkled them generously on both sides with cumin, ancho chili, salt, pepper, and chipotle. season to your taste preference, but I used about a teaspoon to 2 teaspoons of each.

Heat your cast iron skillet to medium high and grease the pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil and one tablespoon butter. Throw in your jalapeños, onions, and garlic once the butter melts and cook until translucent. Next you’re going to brown your chicken thighs on both sides. About 2 minutes each side.

Once you do that, remove your chicken thighs to a plate so you can add in the rest of the goodness! At this point you can also preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Add in the mushrooms and tomatoes and then the cauliflower rice and black beans. I also chopped up a little bit of cilantro and tossed that in too. Stir it all together and season to taste with your cumin, ancho chili powder (or just regular chili powder), salt, pepper and chipotle. I used about another 2 teaspoons for this.

  1. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing skills and also with the layout in your blog.
    Is that this a paid subject matter or did you modify it
    your self? Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it’s
    uncommon to peer a nice blog like this one nowadays..

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell

  3. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the format in your weblog.
    Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to look a great blog like this one these days..

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
