One-Pot Arroz Con Pollo


"Ah, the quintessential gringo meal... Found at every Mexican-American chain restaurant. Why? It's mild, not overly intimidating, and fills the comfort spot in our souls that demands creamy, cheesy, chicken-y goodness. This particular meal is one of my husband's favorite, and even our 10-month-old loves it. It's not spicy, just nicely spiced, and it keeps the chicken breast meat tender and juicy with this type of cooking. The greatest part? One pot, which means easy clean-up afterwards."
