Prepare this spicy and juicy paprika chicken on rice for a hearty dinner table. These hearty chicken thighs are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and the paprika gives them extra flavor.

  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x




  1. Preheat your oven to 400˚F (200˚C).
  2. In a large bowl, evenly season chicken thighs with salt, pepper, paprika, and smokey paprika.
  3. On high, heat olive oil in an oven-proof pot and place chicken thighs, skin-side up, in the hot oil. Cook for 7-10 minutes or the thighs develop brown crispy skin and flip over.
  4. Cook an additional 7-10 minutes to brown the other side and remove from the pot.
  5. Add the garlic and the butter to the pot, and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Next, add the chopped onion and red pepper pieces and stir. Cook them for 5 minutes, until tender.
  7. Pour the rice and chicken broth into the pot and season with salt and pepper. Stir well, bringing it to a boil.
  8. Add water and cook the rice for 10 minutes, string it.
  9. Then, add the mushroom pieces and the paprika chicken thighs back into the pot, skin-side up, on top of the rice.
  10. Cover the pot with a lid and bake your paprika chicken with rice for 30 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked.
  11. For extra crispy chicken thighs, remove the lid from the pot and bake for extra 5 minutes.
