  • 1 tsp. ground cumin, divided
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika, divided
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1¼ c. long-grain white rice
  • ¼ c. apple cider vinegar
  • 2½ c. low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1 bunch tuscan kale, ribs and stems removed, chopped
  1. Season chicken with salt, black pepper, ½ teaspoon cumin, and ½ teaspoon paprika.
  2. In a large high-sided skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Cook chicken, turning occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate to keep warm.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and cook onion, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until toasted, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar and stir until evaporated, about 1 minute more.
  4. Add broth, chiles, adobo sauce, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and remaining ½ teaspoon paprika and ½ teaspoon cumin. Return chicken to skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until rice is tender and chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  5. Transfer chicken to a clean plate. Stir kale into rice mixture until wilted.
  6. Return chicken to skillet to serve.
