Easy Four Ingredient Arroz Con Pollo (Chicken and Rice)


Easy Chicken and Rice Recipe

It’s late, the family is hungry and fast food is looking mighty tempting right about now.  But Stop! Don’t go to that drive thru!

Make this easy, one pot chicken and rice dish instead!


All you need for this is:

a pound of chicken breast cut into bite size pieces

a 8-10 oz package of yellow rice (I use Vigo brand)

2-3 cups of chicken broth

a can of mild Rotel.

I also use Adobe seasoning for my chicken but it’s really not necessary.

If you are in a huge hurry, you can used canned chicken breast chunks. Then it becomes a dump and simmer meal which is great when you have no time to stand over the stove at all.

Of course, with my large family, I frequently double this recipe. I never have leftovers either! The kids just love this.
