    Chicken and Rice

    Colombian-Style chicken with rice was one of my favorite recipes growing up. I would make it at least once a week for lunch. Rice with chicken is one of the most popular dishes in Colombia and South America, but every country has their own variation. This is my chicken with rice( arroz con pollo) recipe. Enjoy!
