Easy one dish meal, I used chicken legs, took about 45 minutes. Just keep an eye on it so it doesnt burn, the rice absorbs really quickly. One piece left for lunch..yayy!!

I'd be interested in trying this. I've made a much simpler version of Aroz con Polo from my slow cooker manual.

Used recipe basics, but changed can tomatoes to the jalapeno can tomatoes for a little more spice. Delicious and easy to make. Thank you Karen.
