It’s easy to fall in love with Mexican food, the flavor is on point, the ingredients are available to everyone, and there is something magical about it that will make you always ask for more. Arroz Con Pollo or Mexican Chicken and Rice is an addictive dish, takes less time to prepare, and is impressive enough to be served at parties.
Making Mexican Chicken and Rice.
The rice on its own is delicious thanks to the combination of warm spices used like cumin and garlic. You can cut the cooking time by 70% if you use a pressure cooker. Still, you can do without the pressure cooker and make a perfect, fluffy rice.
The chicken is baked in the oven, this will cut down the amount of oil used. I didn’t marinate the chicken although you can. The seasoning was perfect and in the method below, I show you a simple way to give the chicken an extra smoky flavor.
It’s fun to make it.
If you are fond of Mexican food, you’ll enjoy making this dish at home. In some recipes, the amount of heat is too much for me and my family so I have reduced it to mild in this recipe.
Mexican Chicken and Rice is one of the most favorited Mexican recipes and I hope that you’d give it a try.
