Chilli Lime Chicken With Chorizo Rice (Gluten-Free)
Chilli Lime Chicken with Chorizo Rice is a delicious hearty weeknight meal. One of my favourite gluten-free chicken dinners is one that uses only one skillet.
Weeknights tend to be super busy, so the last thing you need is a complicated dinner. Keeping it simple when making weeknight meals is always appreciated, especially when the meal is hearty and healthy!
In this recipe, the rice is flavoured with chilli powder, cumin, paprika and garlic. For more flavour, I added a splash of fresh lime juice and flavourful chorizo sausage.
The chicken that tops the rice is crispy and well seasoned, making everything taste so so good! For the finish, add fresh cilantro and more lime juice. An easy weeknight gluten-free chicken dinner, the entire family will enjoy!
Why is this an easy weeknight gluten-free chicken dinner recipe?
You will need a large skillet. I love my cast iron skillet, they are the easiest to clean up, and they cook everything evenly. First, you mix the spices. You will use half of the spice mixture to season the chicken. Once the chicken is seasoned, quickly sear the chicken on all sides and set on a plate for later.
To the same skillet, add onions, peppers and chorizo sausage. Cook just long enough so the sausage is no longer pink, about three minutes.
Next, add remaining ingredients, except the chicken and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, top with already seared chicken and bake until the chicken is fully cooked.
That’s it… how simple is that? An trust me on this, the chicken dinner is outstanding, forget about take out 🙂 The entire chilli lime chicken dinner with chorizo rice is made well under an hour. The cleanup…5 minutes. Now that is a perfect hearty weeknight meal!
