Simple Arroz Con Pollo

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Queen Dana

If you don't have saffron you can leave it out. Using instant rice brings down the total cook time.

I didn't have any saffron, but I did add 2 cups of small cut frozen veggies to make this into a complete meal for my family. Plates all clean, one happy mummy! Made for ZWT8 (The Fearless Red Dragons)
