We don't use tomato sauce or onion in the rice. Also we saute the chicken, with peppers, garlic and Olives and other ingredients that aren't mentioned in this recipe.
All the steps were well worth the end result. Greqt taste and recipes makes enough to feed along. I used chicken breast and added green pigeon peas. I tried to cheat and use instead rice, bad idea as the rice was somewhat soggy but steal tasted great either way.
Awful. Requires expertise in rice cooking. I modified it for the amount of liquid by adding an extra cup of rice and it still took too long to cook all the rice evenly and came out mushy (mogoyao, in Spanish). All the gentle stirring needed to cook the rice made some of the chicken fall off the bone. It also needed more seasoning: bay leaf, oregano, sazon and adobo. Chicken broth would have added more flavor than just water. This is definitely NOT Puerto Rican Arroz con Pollo.
Puerto Rican Arroz Con Pollo (Chicken and Rice) "Cooking With Mama" https://youtu.be/7TruDY_h2BQ Mama really puts FW to shame. IDK when Knorr invaded the kitchens of the world but i would try to get Mama to use good chicken stock, salt and spices in place of the, don't agree .. read the Knorr label. Find a Arroz Con Pollo from 80 yrs ago, will be traditional with only natural ingredients. This looks like one ..... https://www.quericavida.com/recipes/puerto-rican-arroz-con-pollo-chicken-rice/36af953f-8fa8-4550-996c-094afd24ce5a
This is NOT how authentic Puerto Rican arroz con pollo is made. Quit perverting our recipes with ridiculous modifications.
i tried this recipe last night and luckily I didn't put 12oz of tomato sauce I only put 8oz and that didnt even help! its horrible and it didn't cook my rice properly. I had to throw it all out and start from scratch and make my own recipe. This recipe is not valid!
