Creamy Paprika Chicken

INGREDIENTS

4 bone in, skin on chicken thighs

2 tsp. paprika, divided

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 c. rice

1 1/2 c. chicken broth

1/2 c. heavy cream

DIRECTIONS

  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.
