One Pan Chicken & Rice






  • 1 red onion diced
  • 3 cups baby spinach roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup long grain white rice or rice of your choice
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • chopped parsley for garnish
  • lemon zest or slices for garnish


  • Oil then season chicken with Uncle Dibbz DURTTY BIRD RUB in a bowl and combine.
  •  In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs skin-side down and cook until skin is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook another 5 minutes. Remove chicken thighs from skillet and set aside.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook fragrant. Add diced onions and stir for 1-2 minutes, or until they start to become translucent.
  • Add the chopped spinach and stir for another 30 seconds or until the spinach starts to wilt.
  • Add the rice to the skillet, and stir well to coat the rice with the oil.
  • Pour the chicken stock into the skillet and stir well. Bring this to a simmer on the stove.
  • Arrange chicken thighs on top of the rice, then cover the skillet and turn heat down heat to medium low. Cook on stove top for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and rice is tender.
  • Let the chicken and rice rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork to mix everything back together before serving.
  • Top with chopped parsley and grilled lemon slices or fresh lemon zest.


  • This is a family FAVORITE and is made every other week. I absolutely love that it’s a one pan dish without having to use the oven. Also, the Durtty Bird seasoning makes this recipe perfect.
    Thank you!!!

  • This recipe is a fan favorite at my house, not to mention quick and easy! My daughter loves this dish, and she is super picky. All the seasonings are premium, but the Durtty Bird and Straight Drop stay on the refill list. Thank you!!!!!

  • I bought 2 bottles of the durtty bird rub and make this recipe. It is awesome! Now I’m gonna have to try that lemon pepper!

  • I bought the Duurty Chicken rub and made this meal tonight and it was absolutely perfect! The rub is the perfect blend of seasonings. So glad I bought two bottles because I’ll be making this meal quite often. Thank you!!!!
