Arroz Con Pollo 1 Dish Meal

Arroz Con Pollo 1 Dish Meal created by CandyTX

This is a recipe I came up with to use up a whole bunch of salsa that I made (see Leah's food processor salsa). My favorite mexican dish is Arroz con pollo, and have a hard time finding any restaurants that make it to my liking. This is a simple and delicious dish. Please note that this recipe uses rice that is already cooked.

ingredients

directions

  • in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat then add mushrooms, onion, and garlic. let cook for 2 minutes or so.
  • season chicken with salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne- add to skillet, cook until chicken is brown on all sides.
  • add salsa and rice stir frequently while the chicken continues to cook.
  • Add chicken broth a little bit at a time, like you're making risotto(you probably won't need the whole amount of chicken broth because the rice is already cooked- the amount you need depends on what kind of salsa and rice you use).
  • When chicken is cooked through and the surrounding rice is creamy, turn off heat and stir in cheese.
  • Top with some chopped cilantro or parsley for a pop of color.

    Excellent one-pot meal the whole family enjoyed. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because we prefer them over breasts. I used Adobo Seasoning with Cumin and eliminated the salt and cumin. Added ground black pepper to taste I didn't use the cayenne pepper either because my salsa had just the right amount of heat without adding to it. We made this into a full meal by serving with pinto beans and tortillas. This made for a delicious dinner and was so quick and easy to prepare and cleanup was a breeze. My kinda meal. Thanks for sharing. It'll be made again because it received all thumbs up around our table.

    This turned out so good! We really enjoyed everything about it. I used homemade salsa that I wanted to finish up and taco sauce, baby bella mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, a 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro only needed about a cup of broth and added about a 1/4 cup of sour cream at the end just because I'm cleaning out the fridge and wanted to use it up.I loved the mushrooms in this recipe, I would never have thought to added them to a dish like this. I think I'll try making it with this again using double the mushroom and no chicken just to see if it would work as a meatless meal. I found this recipe because I wanted to use up some leftover cooked rice and ended finding a real keeper recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    I followed this recipe pretty loosely, but it turned out great. Thanks for the post!

    Delicious! I have made this a few times now and the recipe never fails. I only use about one cup of chicken broth and like to add black beans. Quick clean up too which is always a plus! :)
