This dish is not terrible, but should not really be called arroz con pollo. It is more like a blander Americanized version of chicken and rice. Where is the chorizo? Where is the oregano? Where is the cumin? Where is the lime juice? Where are the peas? Where are the olives or capers? I realize arroz con pollo is not a recipe that is set in stone, and that it has many variations, but if you want a more traditional dish, you need to go beyond this recipe.

The Idea behind Arroz con Pollo is a one pot dish, as many of you from Spanish decent already know. The recipe is fine to follow but instead of removing as you cook, just keep adding the ingredients as you go, then add your rice and stock, Oh and also remember a whole cut up chicken works as well; if not even more flavorful.

This was great!! I omitted the tomatoes to make it more like the restaurant Arroz con Pollo, and it was! I used bone-in chicken breasts, so I had to cook the chicken a little longer. Also, I cut down the oil to 1 tablespoon to reduce the fat. Wasn't even missed! The second time I used boneless chicken breasts (big time saver), and olive oil instead of vegetable oil - noticeable difference in the flavor!! Will do that again. Thanks for the recipe!
