Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice)

Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice)

"Rice is a standard ingredient of the midday Mexican meal. When flavored with broth, tomatoes, chiles or cheese, it becomes a meal in and of itself. Arroz con Pollo is certainly the most well known Mexican rice dish. Use long-grain white rice for best results."

Delicious! I used yellow Spanish rice instead of plain white rice and the recipe was even more flavorful that way. My only tiny complaint is that the recipe was kind of salty. Between the bacon ...

Awesome! The bacon adds a great flavor. Rather than use chicken pieces, I cut up two boneless, skinless breasts into bite-size chunks. Reheats very well! Recommended for bachelors by Bachelor St...

Family liked it. Smelled great. Kept thinking it would be good with ham or sausage, or even cooked ground beef instead. Wouldn't be as healthy but, oh well.

This was wonderful! I added a can of chiles and some ceyanne per another reviewer's suggestion. A real favorful meal without the fat. This is a real keeper - many thanks!

Very tasty and so easy! I also made Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas for apetizer, and the meal was a real hit! And the Arroz con Pollo was almost better reheated the next day!

This recipe is awesome! I added a 4 oz can of mild diced chiles. Serve with warm tortillas and shredded cheddar cheese to make a meal!

I found this recipe by chance. I used six chicken breast, and my wife and i ate the whole thing. If you dont try it, you will miss out. It is one of the best.
