Simple and tasty. I use this recipe to create perfect yellow rice during the week day rush.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 green pepper, minced
  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups canned chicken broth
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) package sazon con azafran seasoning, from a 1 . 41 ounce box (purchase in the Spanish or Mexican section of your local supermarket)
  • 4 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 -3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 whole chicken breast, cubed (Breast can be cut in half and left whole if that is your preference. )
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Sauté onion, garlic, and green pepper in oil until soft. Add salt and pepper and tomato sauce. Cook an additional 3-5 minutes. Add chicken and sauté until no longer pink. Add rice and broth. Bring to a boil, stir, cover and lower heat to simmer. Cook 25-30 minutes on top of the stove or put in a 325-350 degree pre-heated oven. I prefer to bake the rice in the oven. Top with a small can of drained peas, if desired.
