Mila's Aroz con Pollo

This recipe is courtesy of Terry Pogue. She was kind enough to post this on our old site and of course I don't have her password.

Mila is my Cuban masseuse. This recipe from her is very delicious. I've even made it with Rotisserie Chicken from the supermarket. It's the beer that makes the difference.

Main Course
Main Ingredient: 
Chicken and beer
Serving Size: 
8 persons

1 large bell pepper -- chopped
1 medium onion -- chopped
1 1/2 cups long grain rice
1 bottle beer
1 can tomatoes -- drained
1 tablespoon turmeric
pinch saffron
1 drop yellow food coloring optional
1 jar green olives
some frozen peas
1 small jar of pimiento's
1 chicken cut up.


Marinate the chicken in the criollo sauce overnight in the fridge. Shrimp can also be added.
In a large pan put a little oil and saute the bell pepper and onion. Adding the rice to just coat with a tiny bit of oil.
Add the beer, tomatoes, turmeric, saffron, turmeric, food coloring (if you use it) And bring this to heat. Add the drained chicken, cover and simmer on very low heat until the rice is cooked and separate. Approximately 15 minutes.
Then add the drained jar of green olives, some frozen green peas (the heat of the rice will cook them), and the pimentos.
If you increase the amount of rice just add chicken stock to cover about 1 inch.
Because it's so flexible this is a good company dish. And very pretty.

Recipe Notes: The marinating sauce is Moju Criollo and is available in Spanish markets. One brand name is La Lechonera Marninate the chicken parts in this sauce overnight or several hours.
