This link is to my Authentic Arroz con Pollo / Chicken and Rice Recipe:
. I've been adding quite a bit of extra roasted green pepper and peas to it to make it healthier (traditionally the only vegetable is onion and that barely counts!). I use dark meat for the flavor and increased nutrients but you could easily substitute white meat.
