Cubano Arroz con Pollo step by step

  1. Season chicken with 1 package of sazon and set aside while prepping the rest..
  2. Heat olive oil in a deep pan and brown chicken on both sides. Once brown, set aside on a plate (doesn't need to cook through at the step).
  3. Add your pepper, garlic and onion to the pan and cook until onions are translucent. Add all your seasoning except the package of sazon. Cook 2 more min. Add your diced tomatoes..
  4. Add your rice and the sazon package and mix all together. Don't forget to season with salt and pepper along the way to your taste..
  5. Add water and stir. Nestle the chicken back into the rice and cover and cook for 20-25 min until chicken and rice are cooked through..
  6. Mix in your sweet peas 5 min before serving (they really only need to be heated through).
  7. I garnished with diced green onions. You can garnish with cilantro if you'd like, or not garnish at all… do what you feel is right hahahaha. ENJOY!.
