Ok...so I didn't wait as long for this post! That's called progress people! I gotta start by saying thank you for all of the love you showed my asparagus dish! I got many texts and DMs, likes, shares and follows because of it and I am thankful!! So tell me, do you all like the IGTV format? Or do you want me to just put things on Youtube. Since most of you are on Instagram, I figured that was the best way for you to see my videos. I'm planning to get in front of the camera on the next one, which is a bit scary for me, but it's gonna happen! Anyway, enough chatting, lets get into this Chicken dish. I mean, look at it!!
It's a succulent chicken dish that is packed with a a lot of flavor that comes, not only from seasoning, but also from the searing of the chicken skin before baking, the way chicken stock absorbs into the rice and of course that roasted garlic. What I like about this is that you can do this all between about 4 dishes, which means easy clean up. AND it is ready in under an hour, so even if you're rushing to make a last minute dish, you can do this one and just have to quickly do a vegetable or salad! If you're low carb, this also works because you can just eat the chicken, but still have rice for your family, or just leave the rice out all together and simply bake the chicken! Any way you slice it, it's a dish that clocks in under 300 calories a serving!
I have a similar recipe on my instagram that features sofrito and cilantro to give an arroz con pollo vibe, and you can honestly create tons of combinations to give you whatever flavor combo you desire. My thoughts: start with this simple seasoning and go from there. the technique is the same and you can only go up from here!! You can also do this dish with quinoa, brown rice, wild rice or other grain mixes. Just be sure to cook to absorb the liquid fully, so your rice will be fluffy and not crunchy! Well, that's all I have to say about this super easy dish, just get out there and make it! ASAP!
