Arroz Con Pollo

cooking tips you can trust


Arroz Con Pollo


Select thighs and drumsticks from a small to medium-sized chicken.


Unless you proceed promptly from step 10 to step 11, your garlic will burn and become bitter.


Use low heat in step 14 to avoid scorching the pot.


Preserve steam in the pot by not lifting the lid during the cooking process in step 14.

Arroz Con Pollo


Serve beer or a young, dry medium-bodied white or light-bodied red wine.

Arroz Con Pollo

Chicken breasts

Use chicken breasts exclusively, or use them in combination with the thighs and drumsticks.

Smoked pork products

Add diced chorizo or ham with the onions in my recipe's Step 10.


Add green vegetables such as peas.

Other ingredients

Substitute rabbit or shellfish (lobster, shrimp, mussels, and clams are popular choices) for the chicken. Or combine a medley of these ingredients for a paella.
