  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Mix vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons garlic, paprika, 1 tablespoon cumin, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and chile powder in a large bowl. Add onions and chicken; stir to coat.
  3. Transfer chicken mixture to a casserole dish.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  5. Combine chicken broth, basmati rice, 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic, 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Bring a small pot of water to a boil; add frozen peas. Cook and stir until bright green, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir peas into the rice. Serve rice alongside chicken.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For a little more kick, increase the chile powder to 1/2 teaspoon.
  • For blackened chicken, broil chicken for an additional 5 minutes, or until darkened.

Yum!!! I followed the recipe, but was generous with the spices and garlic. This will be a family favorite!!

This turned out LOVELY! Changed paprika into smoked paprika and used apple cider vinegar for a sweeter hint! Thanks Bill!

Very nice. Subtle heat. Simple. "Normal" ingredients most will have on hand. I think if I make it again, I will up the spice a bit (more chili or paprika and maybe a smokey paprika to deepen the...

Very tasty. I found that cooking it at 425 for 15 minutes, then turning down to 350 for another 15- 20 minutes cooked it without drying the chicken out. The onions may have carmelized more with ...

I loved this one! It was delicious straight out of the oven and as leftovers for lunch over the next few days. Quick and easy to make, a perfect weeknight meal.

Delicious, so flavorful without being spicy! I was looking for a good cumin recipe and I found it! Yum!

I love it! It's going to be a dinner staple for us. I usually find that recipes don't call for enough garlic but this one hits the mark. I was a bit worried that it would be to spicy but I fi...
