One Pot Chicken & Rice

Our take on a traditional Latin American dish, Arroz con Pollo, uses Sazón rice pilaf as the base and seasoned chicken thighs for the perfect pairing. Layering flavors with peppers, onions, artichoke hearts and briny olives makes this an unexpected one pot weeknight dish!

Pantry items:

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper



1. In a large skillet or dutch oven, heat about 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken thighs - about 3 minutes per side then set aside on a plate.

2. Without cleaning the pan (lots of yummy flavors in there!) add the peppers and onions into the same pan, season with the Sazón spice blend, and stir occasionally until the peppers and onions are starting to brown.

3. Add the Sazón Rice Pilaf into the peppers and onions and continue to cook until rice starts to brown - about 2-4 minutes.

4. Add the minced garlic, marinated artichoke hearts and Castelvetrano olives and cook for an additional minute, stirring occasionally.

5. Then, slowly pour in 1 ½ cups of water and stir everything together. Bring to a boil, add browned chicken thighs (skin side up, they will be slightly submerged in liquid at this point) then reduce heat to a low, and cover. Allow the chicken and rice to cook undisturbed for about 25 minutes.

6. While the rice is cooking, chop your cilantro to garnish the chicken and rice and assemble the salad (instructions below).


7. Thinly slice the radishes, then add into a large serving bowl with the arugula.

We recommend setting the salad aside in the fridge and proceed with dressing the salad when ready to serve.

8. Dress with desired amount of mustard vinaigrette, season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss until well combined.

9. Top with fried shallots and cotija.


10. We love serving this family style right out of the pan! Garnish with cilantro and serve with the salad. Enjoy!
