Arroz con Pollo Recipe

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons achiote oil
  • 4-6 chicken thighs, with skin
  • 1 tablespoon adobo seasoning
  • 1/4 cup sofrito
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup sliced Spanish olives

Preparation Instructions

Season chicken thighs with Spice House Adobo Seasoning. Heat the Achiote Oil in a wide skillet or paella pan with tight fitting lid. When oil is heated add chicken thighs and brown on both sides for about 6 minutes on both sides, until they have a nice golden color. Remove chicken.

Add sofrito, tomato paste, olives, cumin, Spice House bay leaf, and sea salt. Saute for a few minutes. Add rice and stir to coat and color. Add chicken back in, and cover with the chicken broth. Heat to a medium boil. When the liquid meets just above the level of the rice, give it a good stir, add frozen peas, lower heat to low, and cover. Continue cooking for 20 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork before serving.

Wonderfully flavored. Great depth of taste. The sofrito recipe makes way to much and needs to be cut down to use in this.

The spice amounts concerned me but, other than adding half the recommended salt amount, the spicing was perfect. My family and my dog enjoyed this recipe.
