This is unconventional. It takes some time. Great food usually does. Recipe comes from Cook's Illustrated folks. I make it a lot. I eat a lot. I am content. This is NOT just chicken and rice. This is sublime. If you like this recipe visit my site for more: mybestcookbook.wordpress.com

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix marinade together and place chicken in it for 15 minutes or longer. (other pieces of chicken can be used, such as legs or breasts. Sticking with one type makes cooking uniform)
  2. Meanwhile, in a oven-ready pot, add oil, onion, green pepper, and hot pepper flakes, and cook until softened. Add chicken and saute until lightly browned on both sides.
  3. Add stock, water, tomato sauce,and cilantro, cover, reduce heat and cook 20 minutes.
  4. Add the rice olives and capers, and simmer covered until oven pre-heats to 350.
  5. Place in oven for 20 minutes, check, add water if necessary, and return to cook for 10 minutes. Rice should be cooked.
  6. Remove chicken, discard the skin and fork the meat off the bones. Compose the final marinade and add to the chicken. Then add the chicken back into the rice, stir, and let sit long enough to rewarm.
