Easy Arroz con Pollo #Recipe from The Christmas Baby

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • One 3 1/2-to-4-pound chicken, cut into 8 serving pieces and skin removed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1 1/2 cups low-salt chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

Directions:

1. Combine the salt, garlic powder, cumin, black pepper and cayenne in a plastic gallon bag. Shake until combined.

2. Place chicken in the spice bag. Shake, making sure the chicken is well coated.

3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Brown chicken about 6 minutes each side. Remove the chicken to a plate.

4. Add the onions, green peppers, red peppers and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the skillet. Stir 7 minutes over medium heat until softened and fragrant. Add the rice and garlic. Cook 1 minute or until the rice begins to turn golden in color.

5. Combine the stock, tomato sauce and remaining teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Add 1 1/4 cups water and the stock mixture to the skillet. Rice should be completely covered in liquid. Fold the chicken into the rice, including plate juices.

6. Bring the rice to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover. Cook about 35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and most of the liquid is absorbed. Skillet should remain covered for 10 minutes before serving. I like to cut chicken into smaller pieces and once again, reincorporate into the rice.

Enjoy!

A Lullaby from The Christmas Baby—3 minute #video

A lullaby for all our beloved Christmas babies—

Sleep my child and peace attend thee,
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee,
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping
I my loved ones’ watch am keeping,
All through the night

Angels watching, e’er around thee,
All through the night
Midnight slumber close surround thee,
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping
I my loved ones’ watch am keeping,
All through the night

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O’er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night.
