Arroz con Pollo or Chicken with Rice

I hadn’t made this dish in a while and my family was asking for it.  This is how I make my Arroz con Pollo.   There is some prep work but it is worth it.  This is such a delicious dish.

 

 

Ingredients:                                             

Seasoning for meat

½ tsp adobo

½ tsp sazon complete

½ sazon with achotte

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp onion powder

For the Rice

3 cups of rice

1 8oz can tomato sauce

1 green pepper

1 red pepper

1 pk sazon

2 tbsp safrito

2 tsp adobo

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 1/2 cups of water

1 cups of chicken broth

2 or 3 tbsp of Oil

2 tbsp green olives

2 tsp salt or to taste

Steps:

Cut the chicken into bit size pieces and then add the seasonings listed.  Let the chicken marinade for at least 2 hours.  However, you can marinade this overnight as well.

Cook chicken in a large enough pan on medium high heat and use a pan that will also hold the rest of the ingredients.  Cook the chicken until no longer pink.  Remove the cooked chicken and set aside for now.

In the same pan on medium high heat put in oil and the peppers, and cook this for 3 minutes.  Then add in tomato sauce, all seasonings (except for salt), and chicken.  Stir well to incorporate all ingredients and let cook for 3 or 4 minutes.

Now add in the rice along with the water and chicken broth.   Add in the salt and this point and stir the rice to blend all of the ingredients now together.   Cook the rice until the liquid almost absorbed into rice.  Lower the heat to low and put a lid on the pan.  Cook the rice until tender.
