Arroz con pollo
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup long-grain white rice
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1/2 cup white wine
1/8 teaspoon saffron
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Cut each breast into 1 inch pieces. Sprinkle chicken with a 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, and paprika.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook until golden. Remove chicken, and set aside.
Add green pepper, onions, and garlic to oil in skillet. Cook for 5 minutes. Add rice; cook and stir until rice is opaque, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in broth, white wine, saffron, and tomatoes. Stir in remaining salt, pepper, and paprika. Return to a boil. Cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Return chicken to the skillet, and cook to reheat. Stir in parsley.
I usually use red pepper instead of green because I’m not a fan of green peppers. This is also one of those recipes that I usually don’t even measure for.
