Ive got an amazing recipe for Spanish Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice). The chicken and saffron rice are cooked together along with some red peppers, onions and peas. Arroz con pollo or arroz con pollo panameño means Rice with Chicken in Spanish. It is a classic dish of Spain and Latin America, with many distinct traditional ways to prepare it, different to various countries. An arroz con pollo you see in Cuba may be rather different than one you find in Peru called arroz con pollo peruano.

Preheat oven to 350°.


Sprinkle chicken with 2 teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. In a 12-inch ovenproof skillet with a lid, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high heat. Add chicken thighs, skin side down; cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn, and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove thighs from skillet; set aside.


Add drumsticks to skillet; cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 6 minutes. Remove from skillet; set aside.


Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell peppers; cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add rice and garlic; cook for 1 minute. Return chicken to skillet. Add broth, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper; bring to a boil. Cover and transfer skillet to oven.


Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest portion of chicken registers 165°, rice is tender, and most of liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with olives. Garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serve with lime wedges.
