Easy Arroz Con Pollo

Easy Arroz Con Pollo


Travel to Latin America with Easy Arroz con Pollo. A flavorful one-pot meal that's a complete taste of the region. This is one of my go-to dishes that I like to order from a favorite Mexican restaurant near me. This is my version of that dish using ingredients that I had in my pantry and freezer. This version is made using an electric pressure cooker, similar to the Insta Pot brand.There are a wide variety of ways, and ingredients, used to make this dish but I wanted to recreate the version I am used to eating. I believe this recipe is as close as it gets. This dish packs a lot of flavor and is quick and easy for a week night meal. Try this one out, I think you'll agree. Enjoy.
