Foodie Friday - Spanish Chicken

Hello everyone! With the new year came some new goals for me and one of them is to post some of my favorite recipes! Every Friday will now be Foodie Friday! I am a total visual person, so there will always be a picture and of course the recipe! I hope you will try it out and let me know how it goes!

That brings us to today's Foodie Friday! A favorite at the house, we have this at least once a week, per hubby request! We both love spanish food so I never argue about having this at the house ;) Tada here is it Spanish Chicken Seasoning Recipe!

Spanish Chicken Seasoning Recipe

1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Chili Powder

1. Put all the ingredients in a small shallow bowl and mix together.
2. Dip chicken pieces in bowl (make sure you get both sides)
3. In a large sauce pan put some oil (I probably don't use more than a tbsp) and bring stove to low heat. Add chicken and cook till no longer pink inside, flip the chicken occasionally! 

*The recipe will cover probably 3 chicken breast (depending on there size).
*This seasoning mix has a big kick of flavor, so if you like things more subtle only season one side of the chicken.
*I like to cut the chicken breast into pieces, so I double the recipe. 
*If doubling the recipe DO NOT double the salt, we use sea salt and I found that the chicken comes out way to salted.
*If you want to recreate the meal in the picture this is how I cook everything so its all ready at the same time. I cook the rice first it takes about 15-20 minutes, while thats cooking I cut up the chicken and season it. Also I cut up the onions for the beans and tomatoes for the side dish! By this time the rice is ready and I start the chicken. I start sauteing the onions, flip the chicken and then add the beans to the onions. I keep the beans on a low setting so I can keep my eye on the chicken and by the time the chicken is done its all good to go! 

I hope you all enjoyed this recipe and will give it a try! Let me know how it comes out for you or if you have any suggestions or questions, I would love to hear from you!
