Chicken Cilantro

Rated as 4.09 out of 5 Stars

"Don't let the color scare you! It's bright green! This is an extremely easy and tasty family recipe. Variations can definitely be made to taste...sometimes I use chicken (boneless or not)...sometimes I use shrimp...sometimes I use both. My family makes it with chicken innards (gizzards, heart, etc.) which I'm not too keen on eating. Hey, but with this soup it's to each his or her own."

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat, and saute the onion until tender. Place the chicken in the pot, and cook until lightly browned.
  2. Puree the cilantro, garlic, and 1/3 cup water in a blender or food processor. Mix into the pot with the chicken and onions. Cook and stir about 5 minutes, until mixed and heated through. Pour enough water into the pot to cover all ingredients.
  3. Mix the hominy, rice, and bouillon into the pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Increase the amount of water as needed to attain desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

I am an avid lover of garlic and cilantro, so it's no surprise that I thought this was fabulous. I actually ended up using almost double the amount of cilantro and garlic for the sauce. I seas...

A very fresh tasting dish (if you like Cilantro!) I added a splash of lime juice and I served it over pasta instead of rice. I had a sprig of fresh cilantro and a thin wedge of lime as a garnis...

I used corn instead of hominy (cannot stand hominy) and I cooked the rice separately (way more convenient). It was good but it was even better with the juice of one large lime. Nice recipe. Than...

LOVED this recipe! LOVED! So tasty. Very easy. Tried to stretch it once and added extra rice, made it like a casserole. Once added some whole cooked pinto beans, because I love them, and loved t...

I made exactly as per the recipe, only I added a carrot into the puree mix. It was really easy and good. It wasn't mushy at all - be sure not to stir too much once the rice is in. I also garn...

I thought this was really yummy. It would be a great St. Patrick's Day tradition, since it is so very green! The only thing I added was a tsp. of ground cumin- gave it a little more flavor.

I love the flavor of cilantro so this dish was perfect. In fact, I have been searching for a version of Peruvian "arroz con pollo" and I'd say this would be it. The hominy adds a nice textural...

I really enjoyed this dish. It was simple to make and tasted delicious. I didn't have hominy so I used corn and I thought it worked great. I did, however, want just a little more flavor or spice...
