If yellow rice seasoning mix isn't available, substitute yellow rice dinner for long-grain rice.


  • 1 (3 1/2-pound) package chicken pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 (0.28-ounce) package yellow rice seasoning mix
  • 2 bay leaves

  • 2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Brown chicken, in 2 batches, in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 5 minutes. Remove chicken, and drain on paper towels.

  2. Sauté onion, bell pepper, and garlic in Dutch oven over medium heat 4 minutes or until tender. Add tomato and next 4 ingredients, and cook, stirring often, 15 minutes.

  3. Add chicken pieces and broth, and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in rice, salt, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 40 minutes or until rice is tender.
