Arroz con Pollo

These past couple of weeks I’ve been a little off in my cooking. A little bit too salty, not salted enough, too watery, not enough liquid. Arggghhh!!! Does this happen to you? My solution would be having a personal chef(I can dream lol) or go back to a comfort food. A dish that is super easy and yummy! Arroz con pollo (Rice with chicken) is a one pot meal. You can make it as an every day meal or you can fancy it up for a more formal dinner. My version is an every day meal. For a fancier arroz con pollo, I would add beer as stock, add peas and decorate it with roasted red bell peppers.
You can use different chicken pieces for this dish. I used boneless chicken breast because that’s what I had available. I always accompany this dish with habichuelas guisadas(stewed beans)

Here are the ingredients:

For the rice:
3 cups long grain rice
3 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tbsp or 3 cubes sofrito
1 packet Sazon Knorr( or Sazon Goya)
3 chicken breasts, cut in cubes
Adobo Goya(Or any all purpose seasoning)
Oregano
Cumin
Salt to taste
Cilantro
Olives

For the beans:
2 cans small red beans (you can use any except black beans)
3 tbsp or 3 cubes of sofrito
2 cloves garlic
1 small potato, cut in small cubes
1 can tomato sauce
1 packet Sazon Knorr
1 packet Goya ham seasoning
Cilantro
Olives
Now watch the video! Buen provecho!
