Arroz con Pollo
Arroz con pollo is a simple one-pot Mexican-inspired meal that is cooked in a Dutch oven. It creates a dish where tender chicken and aromatic rice are cooked together to create a flavorful meal.
The juices from the chicken and sauce are absorbed into the rice for extra flavor. You can add more or less spices, to your taste.
This can be cooked on a gas stove, over a campfire, or even on a grill, making it a very versatile dish.
Serve it with tortillas, beans, and a nice cold drink.
oil, for the Dutch oven
4 to 5 chicken breasts or thighs
salt and pepper, to taste
1 onion, sliced
3 cups rice
cumin, to taste
garlic powder, to taste
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
12 inch Dutch oven
Heat oil in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Brown chicken on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side, then remove from the Dutch oven.
In the same Dutch oven, sauté onions until soft and translucent. Add rice and cook, stirring often, until toasted, being careful not to burn it, about 3 minutes. Season with cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Add the tomato sauce and water then bring to a boil. Stir in the rice, then add the tomatoes with green chilies.
Place the chicken on top of the rice and bring to a simmer. Put the Dutch oven lid on and cook without stirring until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender, 30 to 45 minutes.
