  • In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper, then brown them on both sides. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the diced onion and red bell pepper. Cook until softened, then add the minced garlic, cumin, paprika, and oregano. Stir and cook for another minute.
  • Add the rice to the skillet and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring to coat the rice with the spices.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Place the chicken thighs on top of the rice mixture.
  • Cover the skillet and let it simmer on low heat for about 20-25 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and the chicken is tender.
  • Add the frozen peas to the skillet and stir gently. Cook for another few minutes until the peas are heated through.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro before serving.
  • Enjoy!
