One Skillet Chicken Thighs and Mushrooms with Cauliflower Rice is an easy one skillet dinner recipe that’s ready to eat in under an hour. It’s low carb and gluten free and is made with real ingredients.

I adapted this recipe from I Breathe, I’m Hungry’s Skillet Chicken & Mushrooms recipe and I made these changes to the recipe: Added paprika to the spice mix; Used 1 cup of chicken broth in place of the water; Baked the chicken thighs instead of simmering them.

This recipe starts on the stovetop and ends in the oven so I recommend using an oven-safe skillet so you don’t dirty additional cookware. A cast iron skillet is a great option because it goes safely from stovetop to oven.

Once the meal is ready to serve, place the cauliflower rice in bowls or on plates. Top with mushrooms and juices from the skillet and then place the chicken on top. Sprinkle with fresh herbs for an extra pop of flavor!
