Step 1

Using paper towels, pat chicken dry. Season chicken with adobo. Heat oil in caldero, or large heavy pot over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, until brown on all sides, 7-10 minutes; set aside.

Step 2

Stir onions, peppers and garlic into pot; cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add rice, bouillon and sazón to pot; cook, stirring constantly, until rice is completely coated in oil mixture, about 1 minute.

Step 3

Stir in 3 cups water; bring to a boil. Add alcaparrado and chicken (skin-side up) to pot. Cover pot, reduce heat to low and simmer until water is absorbed, rice is tender and chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes.

Step 4

To serve, using fork, fluff rice; garnish with pimiento strips and peas.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

Save Time and Add Flavor with GOYA®

GOYA® Pitted Alcaparrado is the perfect blend of olives, pimientos and capers that adds a special briny flavor to this Arroz con Pollo recipe and many of our other favorites, like beef stew and ropa vieja. But what makes it even more special: This convenient jar saves us valuable time in the kitchen. We simply the spoon the veggies onto our cutting board, give them a quick chop, and we’re on our way – no pitting, or mixing required!

The recipe was extremely easy to follow. I did increase the cook time because I used chicken thighs. The dish was full of flavor. I will definitely make this again.
