Start with Meat
First, prepare the chicken. Place the chicken breasts in a large bowl and mix with the spices, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and BBQ sauce. Set aside for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, finely chop your onion and yellow pepper.
Then heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan and sear the chicken breasts on both sides. Sear the meat over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. This takes about 5 minutes on each side, depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Once the meat is done, remove it from the pan and set it aside.

Time to Cook the Rice
In the same pan where you made the chicken, now heat the olive oil again, add the onion and fry it on medium heat until golden. Then add the crushed garlic cloves and finely chopped peppers. Let them lightly scented, about 1 minute, and then add the tomato paste to the pan. Stir to combine the tomato paste with the peppers, onion and garlic, then add the rice to the pan and toast it for about 3 minutes.
Add the chicken broth, spices and salt, stir everything together, and bring to boil. Then cover the rice and cook for 10 minutes on low heat. After 10 minutes, turn off the heat and leave the rice covered for another 15 minutes. Then uncover the rice, fluff with a fork and add the meat, or you can add your favorite vegetables. I like to combine rice with green beans, peas or corn. Enjoy!
