Arroz Con Pollo (chicken with rice)

Experience the flavors of Latin cuisine with this arroz con pollo recipe - a perfect blend of savory chicken, aromatic spices, and fluffy rice!

Arroz con pollo is a flavor packed one-pot meal and a popular comfort food from Spain to every corner of Latin America. Each region has their own interpretation of the dish, which is, in essence, a simpler version of paella. My version is pared down family dinner style, and definitely a gringa version, but retains much of the flair that makes this dish famous. It’s not a meal you’re gonna throw together in 30 minutes, for sure. But that little bit of extra effort pays off big time.


  • 8 chicken legs (about 2 – 21/2 pounds)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, rough chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and rough chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, rough chopped
  • large handful cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp anatto
