Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin sides down. Cook until skin is browned, 4-6 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on other side, 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat; sprinkle with 1 tsp Southwest Spice.

(If pan is not ovenproof, transfer chicken to a lightly oiled baking sheet.) Roast chicken until browned and cooked through, 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring ¾ cup water and a large pinch of salt to a boil in a small lidded pot. Once boiling, add rice, then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until water has absorbed, 15-20 minutes.
