I didn't make the rice but the rub on the grilled chicken was great. Will make again and try it with the rice next time.
Spiced Chicken Thighs with Garlicky Rice

Really good spice rub. I used bone-in chicken breasts instead of thighs and cooked them on the grill. Delicious with the rice and the salad.

This was excellent. Before serving, I thought the rice by itself seemed too peppery (I didn't measure I just added some) and before cooking I thought the spice blend seemed too sweet and not particularly spicy. But when cooked and eaten together, the chicken and rice was outstanding. I highly recommend. I didn't have enough chili powder and subbed about half with smoked paprika. DH liked it very much. My son (kind of food snob) was very impressed and really liked it, too. If I had cooked extra it would have been gobbled up. We will be making again.

This was FABULOUS. It was so easy and turned out so well, I'm going to make up a big batch of the spice rub and keep it on hand. Heck, I might even make it and give jars of it with this recipe for gifts for the folks in my life who need a healthy, easy, quick, and yummy go-to dish in their repertoire! I did use boneless skinless thighs because the store didn't have any bone-in, and the meat was still juicy. The rice was great, too - very nice with the chicken and the little bit of sauce. I also made some fresh asparagus for a side dish, and that went with it all really well. I was feeling pretty virtuous as well as full by the time I finished my dinner - great combination...

I made this for our family on a Sunday night. I changed the rice to Vigo Yellow Spanish rice (kids preference). I also finished the chicken off on the grill to give the chicken a nice grilled appearance. Delicious chicken receipe.
