Arroz con pollo

This is my version of chicken and rice. Super easy and quick. It’s a one pot meal. I do the whole thing in my 5-1/2 QT Dutch oven that has a heavy top.

1 whole chicken cut into 8 parts
1 medium red onion sliced thin
1 large red pepper sliced thin
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 cup (+/-) chopped cilantro
1-1/4 cups frozen peas
1 cup corn
1 14.5oz can stewed tomatoes (I’ve used diced also)
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups white rice
1-1/4 tsp salt

Fry chicken in some oil just to brown on the outside. Make sure you brown it well. Salt & pepper to taste. Remove chicken and fry onion slices, red pepper strips, garlic, cumin, paprika, cilantro, peas, corn, tomatoes and add broth. Reduce heat, cover and simmer on top of stove for 20 mins.
Add rice and salt. Add chicken back in the pot. Cover and place in a 350 oven for 35 minutes.

Note: If using 2 chickens cut up, use 32oz chicken broth

    Ingrid if you want to make it spicy you can but this isn’t.
