Arroz Con Pollo in the Slow Cooker

This is a super simple, super quick way to make this classic Latin dish. Flavorful, delicious and kid-friendly.

one chicken thigh per person
1 small onion
2 bell peppers (green & red)
1 packet of Spanish Style yellow rice
1 packet of Sazon seasoning
1 spoonful chopped garlic
2 cans of chicken broth (2-3 cups)
(optional a spoonful each of Sofrito & Recaito you can find them in the Spanish Foods aisle)

Chop the onion, and bell peppers into small pieces. Dump everything but the rice into the slow cooker and cook until the meat is fall off the bone tender. (If you have you have smaller kids you can take out the bones or use boneless thighs.) Pour in the rice and allow it to cook absorbing up all the liquid. Once rice is cooked, stir and serve. And that's it!

  1. I love all type of latin rices but when you make them from scratch the do take a while to prepare. But I will definitely try this quick and easy recipe. With four kids to feed meals can't take to long or they get impatient and snack on little things and are full by time the food is done.
