Arroz con pollo clásico (Puerto Rican Chicken and Rice, traditional and epic)

8 May

Note on reblog: This is one of the most-searched-for recipes on my blog, so I am reminding regular readers that it is here!

Hot, Cheap & Easy


Piled high in a platter and garnished with roasted red pepper and peas, this is a Puerto Rican classic!

Puerto Rican food is not as widely known as some other Caribbean cuisines (think Cuba and Jamaica), but when it comes to arroz con pollo — chicken and rice — you know what I am talking about. And I know I should have blogged this one for you a long time ago. Here, finally, is the one you’ve been waiting for.

    More delicious loveliness from you! A very, very happy Mother’s Day to you and your handsome Leandro, with a year of love and joy ahead! I will be thinking of you extra in the coming time, as we head to PR for “our kids'” wedding (near Dorado) and a few days after in San Juan Viejo. 😀 Can’t wait.

      Oh I wish you a wonderful, wonderful trip! (Eat at El Jibarito on Calle Sol and make sure you go to the Market Square in Santurce)

        Guess where we had supper tonight! I had bacalaitos and tostones, as we’d eaten lunch late and still gone to meet friends for coffee & sweets at Cafecultura after that, so a couple of smaller bites with a cold Coco Rico were just the thing to end the day. Having such a great time it’ll be hard to leave, of course, but I’ll certainly get home with a good Foodie Tues post or two in mind!!! xoxo, K
