Spanish Rice Recipes - Arroz con Pollo

This simple, family recipe, is based on two popular and economical ingredients - chicken and rice.

You cook it on top of your stove, so there's no need to use your oven.

What's more, it's a one-pot dish, so you won't have piles of washing up.

All of which just goes to show that the Spanish can be an extremely practical race, leaving more time for romance and life's pleasures, but still enjoying a wonderfully tasty meal.

Do you prefer your chicken completely fat-free?

Then pull the skin off before chopping into smaller pieces.

And, do take care not to burn the paprika when adding to your recipes, as it makes it taste rather bitter.

Qu aproveche!
