Dominican Chicken & Rice (Compliments Goya)

  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Print


    • 4 chicken quarters
    • Adobo All-Purpose Seasonings
    • Lemon Juice
    • 1 small onion (chopped)
    • 1 Jalapeno
    • cilantro
    • 1/4 cup garlic (minced)
    • Canola Oil
    • 1/4 cup tomato paste
    • Manzanilla Spanish Olives (pitted and halved)
    • Chicken Flavored Bouillon
    • Jacobsen Garlic Salt
    • Canilla Extra Long Gran Rice


    1. In large, plastic zip-top bag or airtight container with lid, add chicken pieces, Adobo, lemon juice, onions, garlic, cilantro and oregano. Seal bag and massage to coat chicken completely in marinade. Marinate at room temperature about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade.
    2. Heat large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat; add oil. Immediately add chicken, skin-side down. Reduce heat to medium and cover pot. Cook, covered, flipping chicken once, until chicken is golden brown on both sides, about 10 minutes (5 minutes each side); transfer chicken to plate and set aside.
    3. Add to same pot over medium-high heat, 4 cups water, reserved marinade, tomato paste, olives and chicken bouillon; stir until well combined and tomato paste and chicken bouillon are dissolved. Season with salt, to taste.
    4. Bring liquid to boil; add rice, stirring until incorporated. Return liquid to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer until water is evaporated, about 5-7 minutes. Return chicken into pot; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through and rice is almost tender, about 15 minutes. Stir chicken and rice from bottom to top (to keep rice and chicken from sticking). Cover pot and cook until rice is tender. Goya’s recipe says about 5-10 minutes more; however, Nonna had to let it cook an additional 15 minutes (30 minutes total). Serve immediately.
