Arroz con Pollo

July 20, 2009 | Beans & Grains, Meat & Poultry, One Dish Meals

I taught a kids’ cooking class today – breakfast for lunch – and while I try to gather together all of those recipes and photos to share, I decided to share this classic Mexican dish. I wrote a piece for Buzz in the ‘burbs last year featuring recipes from the Cordova family in New Mexico – this is one of my favorites! You don’t have to cook a chicken just to make this recipe. Scale it back and make whatever portion will make use of any leftover roast chicken you have.

Recipe courtesy of Denise Cordova Mello. Chicken and rice is a class Mexican dish and you may substitute brown rice if you adjust the broth and cooking time. Denise recommends that you “serve with a smile”.

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups short grain white rice
