DIRECTIONS

  • Cook carrot and green beans in salted water until tender, drain and set aside.
  • In a wok-type pan, saute onion and red pepper in 2 tbsp olive oil until pepper is tender and onion is translucent. Set aside in small bowl.
  • Heat remaining 3 tbsp oil in the wok until hot, then add the cooked rice, stir-frying for several minutes.
  • Add the onion/pepper mixture and mix well to incorporate.
  • Add the Lizano sauce, soy sauce and achiote powder. Mix well to incorporate.
  • Add chicken and mix well to incorporate.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste then remove from heat.
  • Add cilantro and parsley.
  • To serve in a typical manner, fill a serving-sized bowl with the Arroz con Pollo, tamp down, then unmold it onto the dinner plate. Served with a side salad and fried plantains. Here in Costa Rica, it would be served with french fries - a carbohydrate overload!
