This is a good and easy dish.It can be baked in the oven or on top of the stove on a very low flame. I prefer thighs but if you like other chicken parts,feel free.
Annato is a spice and food coloring that makes the rice yellow.I buy a small flat can at the Hispanic market and it lasts forever,just use a small amount until you get the color you want the rice to be.
