    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    I could not stop thinking about the Arroz con Pollo by Jorge Ayala that won the Thowdown with Bobby Flay. It looked SO good.... So I decided to try and find it on the internet, but to no avail. I have no idea what Jorge's tastes like but I wanna try it! In the meantime, I came up with a version that is pretty tasty!

      Fantastic! I made this last night and it was a big hit with my Cuban husband. I followed the recipe except I dredged the chicken pieces in flour and the adobe seasonings before browning them in a little bacon fat/olive oil. The chicken was so tender-- falling off of the bones. This is officially my go-to arroz con pollo recipe. Gracias!

      Excellent! I used 2 pounds of boneless, skinless, thin-sliced chicken breasts instead of the thighs and it turned out fine. Also, I didn't add the extra 1/2 teaspoon of cumin per the recipe for the rice mixture. I liberally seasoned my chicken, so I didn't think it needed the extra seasoning.

      I love this recipe. Ever since I watch Bobby Flays Throwdown. Only change I make it I use saffron (yellow) rice and add a chicken breast with the thighs. Will make again and again. Thank you!
