How to Make Mom's Portuguese Style Chicken and Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Put chicken in pan and cover with water (or chicken broth if you prefer), then add all remaining ingredients except the rice. Bring to boil, then simmer until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from cooking liquid and add rice( If it looks as though you have too much liquid, remove some and set aside--add to rice if needed later). When rice is cooked, return chicken to pan and toss with cooked rice. Most of the cooking liquid should be absorbed.

    Serve with tossed salad.
