  1. Season chicken thighs with black pepper and adobo seasoning.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir green pepper, red pepper, onion, garlic, and tomato paste in the hot oil, until the vegetables have softened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove vegetables from the pot and set aside.
  3. Pan fry chicken in the pot until browned, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Return cooked vegetables to the pot along with rice, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, bay leaf, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until rice is tender and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 20 minutes.
  4. Stir in peas and olives and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and discard bay leaf. Stir in cilantro and serve.

When I'm cooking for myself, I love to make this a bit hotter with fresh habanero or jalapeno slices.

Filling and flavorful it was! I had a different meal plan for dinner today but got distracted and found this recipe instead when I browsed through the pictures. We love our traditional chicken a...

This was an awesome one pot meal...I used a can of Goya Green Pigeon Peas since my local grocer did not carry the frozen petite peas. I wouldn't have used as many green olives though since I am ...

Made tonight for the first time. I had never heard of it before. Wow...what a delicious recipe! I cooked the rice separate and served it on the side. The rich tomato broth was outstanding. The...

Made it exactly as recipe stated and it was very good! I agree with the other reviewers that the olives and cilantro male this dish.

Wow, amazing dish. Even better tasting than I thought it'd be when I read it. I substituted black olives because that's what I had, and made my own adobo from a recipe here on allrecipes. Serve...
