I wasn't sure how this would turn out, cooking the rice in a skillet with chicken. But, to my surprise, it was amazing. It's mine and my wife's new favorite dish! The cumin and paprika together worked nicely, especially with the lemon.

I definitely tasted all of the delicious spices in this chicken and rice dish. The paprika, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and oregano worked perfectly together. I used diced chicken instead of a whole breast, and it was juicy and tender. This is the easiest weeknight meal and not boring. I am adding this to my weekly rotation, and will probably meal prep next time!

This chicken and rice recipe is very popular at my house. I love how everything cooks together in the pan. It smells amazing while it's cooking, and tastes even better when it's done. The cumin was perfect to get that authentic Spanish taste. I like to shred the chicken afterwards and add cilantro.

Really delicious chicken, turned out great. I used diced chicken though, it's easier for me to cook that way when not baking the chicken.

Incredible spices and flavor. Especially with additional cumin and oregano. I used thin chicken breast filets, but next time will probably use thighs. I just feel that whenever I use breasts it's a little dry. Next time I want to make this in the pressure cooker.

Can this be done using pressure cooking in the Multipot? What changes need to be made? Sounds delicious.

Excellent! The whole family loved it! No complaints! I will definitely make again! I used basmati rice and cooked the rice & chicken together for 12 minutes with lid on.
