Recipe by  

"This is an original Peruvian recipe for cilantro rice with veggies and chicken. I really like to eat this with avocado seasoned with lime and salt, or with onions seasoned with lime, salt, and pepper. Delicious!"

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy pot with a lid over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper; cook in hot oil until just browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a platter, reserving drippings in the pot.
  2. Saute onion and garlic in the retained drippings until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir cilantro into the onion mixture; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir mixture for 2 minutes more.
  3. Return chicken to the pot; add rice, water, beer, carrot, and peas. Place lid on the pot, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the rice absorbs the liquid completely and is tender, about 20 minutes.

My DH grilled the chicken separately so I used chicken stock instead of drippings. I added jalapeños to the mix for a little extra heat.
