ARROZ CON POLLO (Rice With Chicken)

(Submitted by Francine T. Ryan)

Fran writes: "This dish is so easy to make. This is the first dish I made when I got married and served my first dinner. Boy was I nervous. As a newlywed, I soon learned how to create inexpensive dishes with style and taste. My grandfather had a saying, "Never cook when you are angry! -- especially eggs". He was a chef for many years in Chiapas Mexico."


2 broiler or fryer chickens, cut into parts and browned

1/4 cup olive oil

2 onions, chopped

2 green peppers, chopped

2 cans (16-ounces) chopped tomatoes or fresh

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

2 envelopes saffron seasoning

1 package (16-ounces) rice (cooked to package directions)

1 roasted green pepper, cut in strips

1 package (10-ounces) frozen peas, thawed or small can of veg all

Preheat oven to 350° F. In large skillet heat oil. Sauté onion and green pepper until tender. Combine with tomatoes, garlic, saffron, rice and pepper strips. Place chicken on rice mixture; place in oven. Bake until tender (35 minutes). Before serving, stir in peas.
