I just made this recipe today for my boyfriend who loves cilantro and he was not that impressed. The concept is actually really good however in my opinion the recipe needs some tweaking. The reason for this is that the rice and hominy together in the same pot created a mush that was not at all attractive either tastewise or visually. My recommendation is either cook the rice separately and leave out the hominy (substitute corn) or make it into a soup. For the soup I will only use 2 chicken breasts half a cup of rice and I will not use hominy since the hominy and rice pretty much have the same consistency. Next time I plan on using corn and adding some lime juice a little cayenne powder and also chicken stock instead of water. Also adding some chopped cilantro that has not been pulverized might be a good idea.
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 seasoned the chicken with salt pepper and cumin before sauteing. My chicken was a little over-cooked in the end so next time I'll be careful to really just lightly brown it before starting the 20-minute cook-time. Also I HIGHLY recommend serving this with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. It really brought the flavors together.
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 garnish. I will definitely make this recipe again.
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 that variation too! Big hit with all of the family from kids to grandpa.
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 element. Next time I'd like to try browning my chicken separately from the onions and trying thigh pieces instead. Otherwise I wouldn't change much. Thank you!
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 garnished with more cilantro and a few squeezes of lime juice. Will make again.
