Step 1

Heat oil in 12” skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces. Cook until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes; transfer chicken to plate.

Step 2

Add onions and peppers to same skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir lemon juice, chili powder, garlic, paprika and hot pepper flakes into skillet. Cook until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Return chicken to skillet.

Step 3

Add contents of yellow rice mix and 2 cups water to skillet; stir to combine. Bring water to boil. Reduce heat to medium low. Simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.

Step 4

Remove skillet from heat; stir in cilantro. Serve warm.
