Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir chicken pieces until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and place on a plate. Cook and stir onion, green bell pepper, minced garlic, and whole garlic cloves in the same Dutch oven until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Return chicken to the onion mixture. Add tomatoes, rice, salt, oregano, black pepper, and bay leaf. Pour in enough chicken stock to cover all the ingredients.
  4. Bake chicken-rice mixture in the preheated oven until rice is tender and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 1 hour and 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  5. Stir peas, olives, raisins, and pimento peppers into the chicken-rice mixture. Bake until warmed through, an additional 15 minutes.

Made this last night for dinner. Simple easy recipe that taste wonderful. Made a full recipe (for 8 servings) and my wife and I finished about half last night and had the left overs for lunch. Tastes just like the Arroz con Pollo I used to get in Panama City and Colon.

I made this yesterday and it was wonderful. I used butter (instead of oil)to brown 8 chicken thighs (instead of cutting up a whole chicken). When I make this recipe again, I will skin the thighs and drain most of the drippings before cooking the onion mixture in them. I ended up with a lot of grease in the bottom of my dutch oven. I'd make this dish for guests. It was tasty and colorful!

I made this for a fathers day dinner for my family. I didn't use raisins only because I and my father do not like them. Im sure it would have given it a sweet bite so I was thinking it was going to taste a bit bland without them but it was absolutely excellent! Definitly going to make again.

I have made this twice in the past 2 weeks. My husband is very picky and also on a health kick, and I feel this recipe fit the bill for him. I used chicken breasts and brown rice and cut the salt and oil for browning. I also added a generous spoonful of cumin because we love that flavor. Don't skip the raisins! I thought they sounded a little odd but they added a wonderful sweet kick.
