Arroz Con Pollo Skillet
Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 2 cups


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup seasoned flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup short-grain brown rice
  • 1 cup water


  1. Halve the chicken breasts lengthwise, then cut each half in half horizontally, so that they are cut into quarters. Dredge each piece in seasoned flour, then sauté them in hot olive oil in an oven-safe skillet. Flip the pieces and then add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic.
  2. Sauté those briefly, then add the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Cover the skillet and place it in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook for 30-40 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  4. Serve hot.
