A classic Latin American dish made of rice, chicken and vegetables with warm spices and cooked in a casserole or deep pan. Completely gluten free, wholesome and very yummy!
Add the spices to the fresh chicken and mix well. Leave to marinate whilst you chop the vegetables. Then in a hot casserole or deep pan brown the chicken. Once brown remove and set aside.
To the same pan add the vegetables previously chopped if you're not using frozen mixed vegetables. Leave to cook for 5 minutes. Add s little more oil if you think necessary.
After 5 minutes add the chicken and the rice (previously washed) mix everything and add the water. Add a little bit more salt, mix everything well so the water leaks through all the rice and leave to cook for 5 minutes at medium temperature.
After 5 minutes cover the pan and leave to cook for another 10 minutes approx or until the rice is soft. Once done turn off the hob cover again and leave to rest for 5 to 10 minutes away from the hot hob. Note this is not a loose rice dish, instead the rice should have a sort of sticky consistency.
After resting, serve hot!
