Hi all,

Arroz Con Pollo is one of my favorites I usually go with when I dine at our favorite Mexican joint (El Toro's) up the road. I have been craving to try this in a Dutch oven. I combed through allot of online recipes and took components of three along with adding Anaheim peppers. Also in all the recipes they chopped and diced the veggies. I cut them into strips or larger chunks. I added chili powder and tomato paste. I also went with boneless chicken breasts cut into fingers and them into chunks. I also used Turmeric which most didn't include. This gives the rice a yellow color. The end result was a full flavored dish with great color and texture. The chicken was fork tender. The rice was amazing.

Thanks for viewing and have a great weekend! :thumb:

Looks great!

My wife was thinking about that for her birthday. It's May 5th, Cinco Mayo, so she's been picking out Mexican food recipes for me to make.

She picked Almond chicken (Pollo Almendrado) and Baked Green Rice (Arroz Verde) instead this year:

Scroll up for the recipes.

Scroll up more for a link to pictures and the recipes for what she picked out for 2012: creamy chicken enchiladas and skillet red rice.

It was really good and easy.

Don't worry if the chicken sticks when you do the first browning. No need to scrape the pan, it will clean itself when you do the final simmer to cook the chicken.

I bought the Wok Cooking Class Cookbook and Chinese Cooking Class cook book by Consumner Guide when I had my first apartment 30 years ago.

We've been going to library book sales, and I've found more in teh series. I never knew that they are a series, and there are (at least): Mexican, Italian, and Japanese, too.

I highly recommend them. They're readily available and very inexpensive online.

Here's the Mexican one

Let me know what you think when you get them. Here are some examples.

Food.com changed their hosting format, so special characters, like fractions, were lost in old threads. I can go back in and put them in, if anyone eants.

Not from the cookebooks, but if you like sesame chicken, this was great.

chicken and rice was a weekly staple here on the farm... my deceased mother had a big oval alum pot and lid (we called it the "survival pot") and she cooked that at least weekly...
oh! and to the beef tip links... way back when we kids were larval, our folks took us to Piedras Negras Mx a few times and we always ate a Maderno's... I do remember getting served beef tips and rice and cold Mexico Coca-Cola. and we always got a souvenier jointed bamboo snake. we loved those things. Very Happy
