Growing up, this was one of my favorite meals. Actually, arroz con pollo is still one of them. Every time. I eat arroz con pollo it reminds me about how exciting it was to come home from school to hear that we were going to have it for dinner. This recipe has it all: it is easy, has veggies, protein, and when you eat it you feel the comfort of the rice. This is also one of my mom’s favorite recipes. I think it is because with few ingredients you can make a lot of food.
In Colombia, each house has its own recipe. The recipe below is my own version, I love tomatoes, so you will see that you will need to have lots of tomato paste and diced tomatoes. This rice is flavorful, perfect for meal prep, and everybody in your house will love it, guaranteed! Let me know how it goes 🙂
