Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until hot, not smoking. Add chicken pieces and saute until browned, about 5 minutes each side. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet, then add onion and bell pepper and saute, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add rice and saute about 2 minutes, stirring, to coat the rice with the oil. Then add the reserved chicken, tomatoes with liquid, chicken broth, bay leaf, paprika and ground black pepper. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove bay leaf and serve.

To make this more like my Abuela's arroz con pollo, I used a little less broth (we use about 1 1/2 cups total liquid per cup of rice) and a small packet of Goya seasoning con azafran instead of the paprika and pepper. It was great!

This is a great foundation recipe - it can be taylored to fit many tastes. I found it took longer to brown the chicken, but the rest of the recipe is pretty accurate. I did my own version: Substituted olive oil with canola oil; Supplemented the paprika with cumin; Used the chicken skin to flavor the rice and peppers, then discarded the skin; Supplemented the bell pepper with 3 more serano peppers; Supbtituted whole tomates & liquid with diced tomatoes & liquid; Also, I believe using my Le Cruset for this dish made it better than a regular pot. I think it will make good leftovers, too.

This was a really tasty dish--my lover loved it. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and canned diced tomatoes with green chilis. This one is a keeper because we love Mexican dishes and this tastes quite authentic.

Wow; Incredible great recipe that I will make again and again. My changes..1 tsp cumin instead of paprika and rotel diced tomatoes with a small can of tomotoe sauce. Rice takes forever to cook in the dry air of Las Vegas so I thought the extra liquid would help and it did!

I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs for this but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Really easy to prepare, great weeknight dinner because of minimal prep. The taste was very yummy! I may try this in the crockpot next time. My family raved at how great this tasted!
