“The Classic Caribbean and Spanish Meal--Arroz con Pollo--is a popular staple in the Caribbean kitchen. Our chicken and rice is extra special with the addition of Sazon GOYA® with Azafran, which adds color and flavor derived from our unique saffron spice blend. Make Arroz con Pollo tonight--everyone loves an easy rice and chicken dish.” - by Goya
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Using paper towels, pat chicken dry. Season chicken with Adobo. Heat oil in caldero, or large heavy pot over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, until brown on all sides, 7-10 minutes; set aside.
- Stir onions, peppers and garlic into pot; cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add rice, bouillon and Sazon to pot; cook, stirring constantly, until rice is completely coated in oil mixture, about 1 minute.
- Stir in 3 cups water; bring to a boil. Add alcaparrado and chicken (skin-side up) to pot. Cover pot, reduce heat to low and simmer until water is absorbed, rice is tender and chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes.
- To serve, using fork, fluff rice; garnish with pimiento strips and peas.

"Delicious! I used real garlic instead of the goya brand and i added chopped red peppers. It was very good. very authentic. Reminded me of my mom's :)..." See more"
"So easy and so delicious! I would say the only changes I made were to use fresh garlic instead of the Goya minced, and I didn't need the sliced pimientos for garnish. It was great without it. And I..." See more used boneless, skinless chicken thighs which was what I had on hand. Next time I'll try cutting the oil down to 2 tbsp. to cut down on fat a little. But the whole family loved this, and my kids can be pretty picky eaters. Two big thumbs up!"
