Perfect Pantry Dinner!

When times are tough, the pantry can be your best friend for helping to pull together a family dinner.  This One Pot Spanish Chicken and Rice recipe is a perfect example!  Click here to get more pantry dinner ideas and  Pantry Must-Haves for Quick & Easy Dinners!  

For this Spanish Chicken and Rice, here is what you need and how you could swap with other ingredients if needed:

Refrigerator/Freezer

  • Chicken Thighs – You can use chicken breasts if you don’t have thighs, but boneless skinless thighs really are so perfect for this dish.  If you need to use frozen chicken, be sure to put it in the fridge to thaw 24 hours before planning to cook this recipe.
  • Carrots and Celery – You can make this recipe without these veggies, but they add flavor and texture, as well as vitamins and nutrients.  You could use frozen carrots if you have them too.  Simply add them straight from the freezer, do not thaw first.
  • Other: Not included in this recipe, but would also be delicious in it are red pepper and Chorizo (out of the casing).

Pantry

  • Spices & Seasonings – This is where you can make substitutions based on what you have on hand.  The one ingredient you do really need for this recipe is Smoked paprika, which gives the dish it’s distinct Spanish smokey flavor.  If you don’t have this and cannot get it, you could swap with chili powder. 
  • Long grain rice – You can use other types of rice, but if you are going to use a converted rice or quick cooking rice, you will want to cook the chicken 10 minutes longer on the stove without the rice.  Then add the rice and cook in the oven for 20 minutes vs. 30min.
  • Onion & Garlic – If you do not have fresh onions, you can use frozen.  You could use onion/garlic powder or flakes if needed.
  • Tomato – If you do not have a fresh tomato, you can use 1 can diced tomatoes.
  • Tomato paste – This ingredient gives the dish a deep deep tomato flavor which is hard to replicate, but you can leave it out as long as you have another tomato product in the dish.
  • Spanish Olives stuffed with Pimento – I like to keep these on hand in my pantry, but if you do not have them, you can use any olives.  You can also substitute with capers or even artichoke hearts in a pinch.  Of course, you can simply leave them out altogether!
  • Chicken broth – You can substitute with bouillon mixed with hot water, vegetable broth, beef broth, or just water if needed.  Be sure to taste for seasoning and adjust for more flavor by adding salt, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

For this recipe, you need a large (5-6 quart) pot with lid that can go from the stove to the oven. My prized possession dutch oven was perfect for this! Or any good quality enameled cast iron 5-6 quart dutch oven with lid is great.

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR ONE POT SPANISH CHICKEN AND RICE

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

This is the kind of recipe that you can reheat later and it’s nearly as good as when it first comes out of the oven.  So, you could make the entire recipe ahead if you need to!

In terms of prepping ingredients, you can dice the carrots, celery, and onion. Mince the garlic. Rough chop the olives so that most are at least cut in half.  Cut the tomato into large chunks.  Chop the parsley, if using(optional).

Potato Perfection.  That’s what we have here.  Crispy, salty, slightly spicy potato PER-FEC-TION!  My Patatas Bravas Recipe with Chorizo and a creamy Paprika Aioli is an easy, indulgent, and utterly delicious savory treat that you really must try this week!  Our friends in Spain really know how to do it up!  My version takes spicy chorizo that’s been seared and rendered in a pan so all of the wonderful fat comes out.  The potatoes can then go for a dip and get super crispy and flavorful in that chorizo goodness.  Spanish Paprika is the main flavor here and it is simply heaven!  It’s smokey, spicy, and warm.  Top everything off with a creamy, tangy, slightly spicy Paprika Aioli and that’s how you get potato perfection!

Paprika!

Paprika is made from ground dried peppers that range from sweet to hot. Not only does it add a beautiful red color and peppery flavor, it has benefits for your health! Paprika is a great source of antioxidants and can help eye health. If you go for the hot paprika, then the capsaicin that gives the heat also has anti-inflammatory benefits.

So, put Paprika on EVERYTHING! Try it in my Hungarian Paprika Chicken!  Here are some of the great ways to incorporate paprika into food: Sprinkle over avocado toast, mix into cooked quinoa or rice, season raw meats or fish with it, add it to sauces or soups or stews, sprinkle over veggies before grilling, and so much more!

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

Nothing special for this one! Just a large sheet pan (I use a 17×11) and a large skillet/frying pan. I use my absolute favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan, which is great because food really does slide right off with minimal oil and I don’t have to worry about food sticking and burning.  It comes with a glass lid, which is perfect for watching your dinner cook!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR PATATAS BRAVAS RECIPE COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

 For this recipe, you can roast the potatoes ahead in the oven and then when you are ready to eat, you can cook the chorizo and crisp up the potatoes in the skillet!

Wash the potatoes and leave the skin on. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces, generally about an inch. Add the potatoes to large sheet pan. I like to cover the pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up, but it’s not necessary.

Drizzle with olive oil and then sprinkle the salt, black pepper, and paprika.

Rub the seasoning all over the potatoes using your hands making sure each pieces is coated. Then spread into a single layer and roast in a 400 F degree oven on the center rack for 30 minutes. When they are done, you can cool them off and store them in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to finish cooking.

While the potatoes are cooking, you can also prep the chorizo.  Chorizo comes in a few different variations.  You will find fully cooked sausage, raw sausage, and dry-cured.  For this recipe, you will not want dry-cured.  You can get either the fully cooked or raw sausage, both of which will likely have a casing that you will want to remove.  I used a fully cooked chorizo.

If it’s raw, don’t worry about breaking up the meat until it cooks. If it is cooked, break it up into chunks. Store sealed in the fridge until ready to cook.

COOK YOUR PATATAS BRAVAS RECIPE! 

Preheat a large skillet on high. The chorizo has a lot of delicious fat, so you probably don’t need additional oil if you are using a non-stick skillet. But you can always add a drizzle of olive oil if desired.

Add the chorizo to the hot skillet. If raw, break it up with a spatula into bite-size pieces. Let it sear and start to render the fat.

Once it is fully cooked and/or seared, remove it it using a slotted spoon or spatula, leaving the fat behind.
