Arroz Amarillo Con Pollo

It's been long time I didn't cook Spanish meal for Elliot.At first, I'm thinking of cooking Paella for him but I don't have fresh seafood like clam,mussel and squid .What I have in my fridge is boneless chicken and some shrimp.I guess he don't mind having Yellow Rice with Chicken.Yes,that is Arroz Amarillo Con Pollo.
I used Gyoza Arroz Amarillo in the box.Just follow the instruction on the back of the box.But instead of using pot for cooking rice I used rice cooker.I have no idea how to use Spanish or south American way to cook rice in the pot.Hey! I'm a Chinese,of course I can't live without rice cooker.Furthermore my rice cooker is non-stick!!.

I cut some boneless chicken and add in some green peas with the yellow rice.No extra seasoning needed.All ingredients go together in the rice cooker at the same time.Just press button "cook" ,then sit tight and wait about 15-20 minutes.Ta-dah!!My Arroz Amarillo Con Pollo is ready to serve!!.I have some left over lard,so I make some Chicharron.As you can see I spread Chicharron on as garnishing.Of course it's taste better!!
Yes,I know the Chicharron is not healthy but once a while it's alright.Since strawberry in season now.I add few sliced of strawberry as a salad..This meal is simply and easy to cook.For me ,I just add some picate with my yellow rice.You can add in spicy chili if you want to feel the heat.

No way! Hahaha, way before the rice cooker, we used to cook rice in a pot. I remembered how my grandma used to cook over the stove and I learned it as a kid.

I too cook Paella on Monday but I used saffron and our jasmine rice. I should try out this Goya brand the next time. It look really yellow. Yours look so authentic especially with the Chicharron :)

Arroz Amarillo Con Pollo...what a sophisticated name. Well, I don't know much about Spanish food except Paella...:O
The yellow rice reminded me of indian food god! Your spanish meal made me crave for briyani!

Yes,I remember when I was a child my mom use charcoal on stove to cook rice.If I do that now,I'm sure all the rice is going to look like charcoal!!lol!!.I dunno how to control the fire.

Gert,I love use Gyoza yellow rice to cook Paella instead of Jasmine rice.One time I run out of yellow rice I use jasmine rice and Elliot said the Paella doesn't taste good like used to be.Get Gyoza Yellow rice from Dollar Store,it's cheaper than other supermarket.

Since you live in Cali,you can easy get Gyoza yellow rice in box.You don't need much work cooking this meal,just dump everything in the pot and there you go..Trust me it's taste good!!

I like this Arroz rice. They are very delicious. The spices is not too strong and can eat it with any side dishes.
