My mama's famous Puerto Rican chicken and rice, also known as arroz con pollo, is made in one pan with homemade adobo seasoned chicken sofrito and savory rice. This comforting dish is easy to make and the perfect nourishing weeknight meal. You'll make this recipe again and again!
Bring to a simmer then fold in the rice, peas and olive (if using) making sure they're evenly distributed. Add browned chicken on top.
Do not use brown rice. It takes a lot longer to cook and I would NOT recommend it. Cauliflower rice works well in this recipe.
If you are looking for a grain alternative, I would recommend subbing about 2/3 cup quinoa. The cooking time and liquid ratio will stay the same.
