arroz con pollo

Going back to Michael's Miami roots...we have been wanting to make arroz con pollo for a while. It was delicious and worth the work.

1. marinate chicken in lime juice/garlic/salt brine  (2-4 hrs)
2. brown chicken
3. make sofrito: peppers, onion, garlic, saffron, oregano, bay leaf
4. add chicken back in, cook down
5. add rice and chicken stock
6. finish off with a beer (seriously, poured into the pot)

We found the recipe here: Arroz con Pollo, from arroz y frijoles


  1. lime juice/garlic/salt brine? saffron?? Man, you're making me feel like I am (in the words of George Costanza) "out there rubbing two sticks together."

  2. when you get back we'll make it again and have you over for dinner :)
