    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Pat chicken breasts dry and cut into ½" pieces. Set aside ¼ the paprika. Season chicken with remaining paprika, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ½" dice. Place rice in a mixing bowl and cover with water. Soak at least 10 minutes, then rinse in a wire-mesh strainer until water runs clear. While rice soaks, sear chicken.

  • Step 2 - Sear the Chicken

    Sear the Chicken

    Place medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add chicken pieces to hot pan and sear undisturbed, 3-5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 3 - Poach the Chicken
