Have you had Arroz con Pollo?
Traditional Arroz con Pollo (chicken and rice) is popular throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. It’s delicious.
This is a quick and easy one-pot variation using leftover cooked chicken that can be made in about 30 minutes from Weight Watchers’ Simply the Best : 250 Prizewinning Family Recipes, a cookbook I’ve been turning to regularly since the late ’90s. (It shows the old points, but you can easily calculate the new PointsPlus Values since all the recipes include complete nutritional information. In this case a serving changed from 7 points to 9 PointsPlus.)
We had this easy Weight Watchers Arroz on Pollo for supper on Sunday using leftover rotisserie chicken from Costco. It was simple to make and very yummy. I didn’t have the can of tomatoes with green chiles called for, so I substituted salsa instead. It turned out flavorful but not spicy and the servings were generous.
Served with Caesar salad, it made a satisfying meal. And there was plenty left for a quick and easy lunch Monday.
