Arroz Con Pollo (Chicken & Rice) ~ New Family Favorite!

Every once in awhile, I come across a recipe that I decide to take a chance and try. This time it's a recipe from Skinnytaste. I was looking for something I could make on a weeknight and that would be a little different from anything else I typically make for dinner.

After going to through a number of appealing recipes, I settled on Arroz Con Pollo. Nothing like a kicked up version of chicken and rice to make dinner more interesting, right?

Arroz con pollo

When we were in Puerto Rico last summer, we enjoyed some of the local cuisine. I decided that I do love mofongo and hope to find a recipe to try to make that one at home soon. My Youngest tried the Arroz con Pollo and really enjoyed it, especially the flavor of the rice. So, I knew that at least a couple of us would like this dish since I was drawn to the flavors already.

What I didn't expect was for everyone to dig in and go back for seconds and even third helpings! The flavor from the Adobo seasoning and the Sazon Tropical, were what I think brought this dish to that level of being hard to stop nibbling.

This was truly a one pot meal since everything cooks together in the same pan. Just keep an eye on it as the rice on the bottom could get dried out faster than the rest of it so, you might need to add a little bit more water if it's getting too dry.

I'm going to send you over to Skinnytaste for the recipe... be sure to check it out!

Here are some other Spanish recipes that I hope to try soon:

One Pot Spanish Chicken and Potatoes from Pinch of Yum
Sweet Fried Plantains from The Kitchn
Bocadillo El Camino from Food52
Tortilla EspaƱola from Trissalicious

Just thinking about these recipes has me wanting to head into the kitchen and start experimenting with these classic dishes!
