Recipe by Carrlin
This is from the Goya website. I tried it out and it was really good. I just made some modifications. The original recipe called for 4 lbs of chicken. I use much less chicken and more rice.
- 2 lbs boneless skinlesss chicken thighs
- adobo with pepper, to taste
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 6 fresh garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups onions, finely diced
- 1 1⁄2 cups green peppers, finely diced
- 6 cups water
- 2 (5 g) packets sazon con azafran seasoning (comes in envelopes in a box, gives color and a distinct flavor to latin dishes)
- 2 chicken bouillon cubes
- 1⁄2 cup goya pitted alcaparrado, sliced
- 3 cups long-grain rice
- 1 (4 ounce) jargoya fancy sliced pimientos
