Arroz con Pollo Peruano Palillo - Americanized

Arroz con Pollo Peruano Palillo - Americanized


"This is an Americanized version of the Peruvian Chicken and Rice dish that is made with Sal de Complemtos. I have adjusted the recipe to use ingredients available in the US, and tweaked up the seasonings to avoid the need for Aji Amarillo sauce which the Peruvians would have and use liberally, but Americans don't have it, and won't put on if you give it to them, but then complain the dish was bland! If you have some and want the dish spicier, just add it on top at the table."
