    Hi Kelly-

    This is looks amazing! I’m putting this in my weekly meal plan.

    • Good morning Joan, wonderful idea! This meal is so great to add to your rotation. Do you do meal planning, as in portioning out for the week? If so, this recipe is perfect because you definitely get a lot of rice to work with. We have a lot of rice leftover and I am already thinking of how to stretch it out: adding beans, or doing a fried rice with scrambled eggs and tortillas. You can get a lot of variety for a meal plan with this recipe. Thanks so much for tuning in today! Have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    • Hi Beth, Thank you so much for stopping by Kelly’s Kitchen! This recipe is definitely a hit at our house, I am sure your family will enjoy it. Let me know how it goes for you! Have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    Grew up with Arroz con Pollo and made it often while raising a family. Your recipe sounds like a gourmet version! I’d love to taste it. My favorite part of today’s post? “I went rogue…” Lol! Looking forward to more chicken and rice recipes as we go into winter. Love and hugs to you, Kelly~

    • Hi Sylvia, There is always a little bit of “going rogue” in my recipes, Sylvia! You have to keep it interesting, right? Haha! Thanks so much for stopping by today, give this one a try and see how it compares to your version. Let me know how you like it! See you next week, have a wonderful weekend, Sylvia! xo Kelly

    Is there a place that has all your recipes stored? I am not very technical and don’t know how to find your old recipes.

    Thanks, Jan

    This sounds so good! I love the sazon mixture, and thanks for the tip on the better than bouillon! I will definitely try that. This looks just delicious. Especially in fall, I love a good hearty dish and this is great.

    • Hi Suzanne! Yes, this is a perfect recipe for fall. And, YES on the Better Than Bouillon. I swear by it! All of the flavors are wonderful. When I make plain ol’ rice, I like to stir in a teaspoon of the vegetable bouillon before cooking, such a good flavor! Thanks for writing in today, it’s good to hear from you! I hope you get out and enjoy some nature this weekend; I love to see what you will paint next! xo Kelly

  7. Sharyn says:

    Looks delicious. My request for a rice and chicken receipe: chicken biryani. I have tried several recipes and none have come even close in flavor to my Granny’s. Restaurants here in the US don’t either.

    • Hello Sharyn, Biryani! Wow, that’s a great suggestion! We will definitely do that one. I hope my recipe will come close to your Granny’s! Stay tuned for that, thanks so much for writing in with your request. Have a lovely weekend, xo Kelly

    I love to cook, and I love to read recipes. I already have several cooking sites that I follow. When I saw that there was going to be a regular recipe on this blog, I wasn’t sure I’d take the time to read another recipe. However, I started reading your posts, and found that your recipes were great! Thoughtful versions of classics. Your posts have become a favorite of mine – and I suspect lots of others. Thanks!

    • Hi Bridget, How wonderful to hear from you! I am so happy that you have found my recipes to be worth the read! I have a lot of fun writing this Saturday column and it really makes my day that you find it enjoyable. Thank you for writing in, have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    Kelly, ¡Muchas gracias de Mexico por esta receta! Voy a cocinar arroz con pollo pronto, Kristine

  10. Eva Popovich says:

    I gave it 5 stars because you gave us the recipe! When I was a new and eager cook in South Florida, a Latina friend made this for me. It was soo good, I asked for the recipe. She said she could not tell me, but she would come over and show me how to make it. And so she did, and again it was a wonderful dish. But I have never, ever been able to successfully make it since! Now I have your recipe, and I am going to make it.
    Thank you so very much!

    • Hi Eva, What a great story! Well, I am so happy to share the recipe with you so you can make it at home. I hope it comes out for you just how you remember it. Thanks so much for writing in today and sharing your story, xo Kelly

    I made this recipe for dinner tonight and just love it! It is easy to make and took about an hour from start to finish. The blend of flavors is great. I grew my own coriander this year and ground it for the spice mix. I also used Basmati rice and that worked well. Thank you for another great recipe.

    • Hi Mary, I am so happy you made the recipe and that you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for writing in to let me know. I bet your fresh coriander really made it special. Thanks so much! xo Kelly

    When did arroz con pollo morph into this unappetizing dish? I’ve been cooking it for 30+ years: browned chicken, sauté chopped onion, garlic, crushed red pepper, add rice and saffron and cook until rice starts to toast. Add chicken broth, canned chopped tomatoes, chopped green chilies, s&p, and chicken pieces. Bring to a simmer, cover, bake an hour. Add peas, chopped pimento, and sliced stuffed olives, and 1/2cup of water. Bake 15” more. Dish is a little crusty at the edges, well-flavored, beautiful, and delicious.

    • Hi Chris, to be honest, I don’t see how this recipe for Arroz con Pollo is that much different than the recipe you list in your comment. A few different ingredients and spices, but it’s very similar. One big difference though is my addition of Sazon, which is a typical Latin spice blend. Your chicken and rice dish sounds delicious, and I will say that the recipe in this post is quite good as well. To each their own. xo Kelly

    I’m ready to try the Arroz con Pollo however, living up here in the mountains of Montana there seems to be a dearth of Adobo powder. Which brand of Adobo are you using? Or Do you have a recipe for it? – Best, Eileen
