Authentic Arroz Con Pollo, or Latin chicken and rice, is the ultimate one-pot meal. It's a classic Colombian dish that I grew up on that I now love to cook for my family.

Steps to make Arroz Con Pollo (Chicken And Rice):
  1. Season thawed chicken thighs with adobo seasoning and black pepper– you can use any type of chicken you like
  2. Heat oil in medium to large pot - you will use this same pot to cook everything
  3. Brown chicken in oil, about 5-7 minutes each side. Once browned on both sides set aside chicken (do not drain oil off chicken)
  4. In pot add capers to heated oil , i add the capers first so the flavors just burst!
  5. Add sofrito, tomato sauce, sazon and olives (i love the green olives with the pimento, i add about 2 tbsp)… Let sauce heat up about 2 minutes, stir frequently
  6. Once sauce is heated and mixed together add rice ( any rice will do, i use mahatma jasmine rice) and add water
  7. Stir once— you do not want to stir the rice too much as it will become soggy rice
  8. Bring to a boil , boil about 5 minutes.. Reduce heat and let simmer until water is absorbed– while the rice is cooking i like to shred up the chicken, for this particular meal i just cut it into small slices
  9. You can add the chicken anytime , i like to add mine when the rice is almost done just because it makes for easier cooking time for the rice…
  10. Remove from heat and enjoy!!!
