Chef’s Tips:

  1. This one-pot meal requires a fair bit of chopping, but cleanup is quick and easy.
  2. Add spinach or other greens for more color and nutrients. In the picture above, I’ve added sautéed boo choy, broccoli, and carrots.
  3. This dish is also called arroz con pollo.
  4. You can make this in a rice cooker too! Simply place all the ingredients into a rice cooker and cook until done, about 30 minutes.
  5. September is both Rice Month and Chicken Month.
