      This was SOOOO good! I had never made Arroz con Pollo before, but this was outstanding! Just like you said - very flavorful! I made it in the crockpot, just threw everything in together, and it came out great! Hubby wants it on the weekly dinner rotation now. Thanks Kitten!

      Easy and satisfying! We omitted the ham and peas and it was great. I don't like really spicy food but this was just fine with me - flavorful, not really spicy. Will definitely make it again!
