This was great!! I omitted the tomatoes to make it more like the restaurant Arroz con Pollo, and it was! I used bone-in chicken breasts, so I had to cook the chicken a little longer. Also, I ...

This dish is not terrible, but should not really be called arroz con pollo. It is more like a blander Americanized version of chicken and rice. Where is the chorizo? Where is the oregano? Wh...

I thought this was really good, and easier than some arroz con pollo recipes that I have seen. As a chef I have to tell all of you that substituted tumeric for saffron, and then complained of la...
