Spanish Rice With Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

This recipe is an old time family favorite. It's good to make when you have many mouths to feed but very little food supply! You can use what ever kind of chicken you got on hand. I prefer chicken breast, they cook faster, and it's easier.

This was YUMMY!!! It was super easy to make and it tastes a lot like the rice I get from Mexican resteraunts. I used some BBQ chicken and just shredded it into the pan and tomato paste instead of sauce. Topped it off with some grated Tasty Cheese. Thanks for sharing.

Good Recipe! Made as written with the addition of 1 tsp chili pepper.Any chicken or turkey can be used also. I used some precooked large turkey gizzards, diced (personal preference) I had previous cooked in chicken broth and had frozen. It has intense flavor the next day and a good dish to microwave to reheat. Thanks for posting!
