One Pan Chicken and Dirty Rice

chicken thighs covered in marinade in a glass bowl

Marinating the chicken thighs will lend more flavor to the dish. Trim extra fat and skin from the thighs. We also debone our chicken thighs. Just makes them way easier to eat. Combine all the spices for the marinade in a small bowl.

Drizzle the chicken with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Rub the chicken to coat evenly with the oil, sprinkle the spice mixture over the chicken and rub to coat. Refrigerate for at least an hour (or more).
