  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

In a small bowl mix together the spices for the chicken, then rub half of it on chicken (reserve half for later)

Heat a skillet over medium heat then drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons olive oil and cook chicken until golden brown on each side (about 2-3 minutes on each side- you will finish cooking it later). Then remove and set aside.

Fill skillet with cauliflower rice, stock, lemon juice, and the other half of the spice mix. Stir the cauliflower rice then set chicken thighs over rice, cover with a lid, and cook on medium/low heat for 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
