  • Add rice and stir until it is fully incorporated
  • Add 4 cups of chicken stock and the liquid from the canned peas (I added the peas and red peppers instead of using them for garnish as the recipe called for)
  • Stir
  • Add the chicken and top with as much chicken stock as your pot allows (leave a bit of space as this will boil)

  • Reduce heat to low. Cook for about 15 minutes
  • Transfer the pot, lid and all into the oven. (Ensure your pot is ovenproof!)
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes

Note: If you like this recipe soupy then follow recipe exactly, if you prefer it dry I would ONLY use 3 cups of chicken stock—in the entire recipe.

    Didn’t have a clue what I was going to cook for dinner tonight for the kids, thanks for the inspiration on the classic latin dish.
