Recipe Ingredients for Poultry: Spanish Chicken and Rice

8 chicken drumsticks
2 T. olive oil, divided
1 1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 Salt and black pepper
1/2 lb. turkey kielbasa, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 medium-large onion, diced medium
1/2 red bell pepper, diced medium
1 1/2 c. uncooked rice
3/4 tsp. turmeric
2 1/2 c. chicken broth
14 1/2 oz. petite-diced tomatoes
3/4 c. peas, frozen

Recipe Directions for Poultry: Spanish Chicken and Rice

  1. Mix 1˝ T. of the oil with paprika, garlic powder, and oregano. Rub into chicken and sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat a large heavy-bottomed deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add drumsticks and sauté, turning 3 times to get four sides, until well-browned, about 8 minutes. Lower heat to medium-low and continue to cook, turning occasionally, for an additional 4 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  3. Add remaining oil and sausages to skillet. Cook until browned, 2-3 minutes.

  4. Add onion and peppers. Cook until tender, about 4 minutes.

  5. Stir in rice and turmeric to coat with oil.

  6. Add broth, tomatoes, and chicken. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook until liquid has absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes.

  7. Stir in peas; cover, turn off heat, wait a few minutes. Serve.
