Shortcut Arroz Con Pollo

Anyone else feeling Maycember in full force? Whoever came up with that term for the month of May was spot on! Field trips, recitals, sports, projects, graduations…who else is going crazy?!? I’m feeling all of it double duty as a mom AND a school teacher. For my Lee’s Marketplace recipe this week I wanted to do something super easy but of course yummy. We all need something quick to feed our families and keep our sanity right now! I knew that my Shortcut Arroz Con Pollo would be perfect! I have been making this for at least 10 years. I used to just call it “Chicken and Sausage with Yellow Rice” but realized that it has many of the same flavors as Arroz Con Pollo. That sounds fancier anyway right? Ha! There are only 6 main ingredients besides water and oil. SIX! The rotisserie chicken, sausage, and rice all pack a punch with flavor which makes a simple dish tastes like you’ve spent hours. I always make cornbread muffins with this because they just go really well and it makes a more complete meal. I hope y’all love it as much as we do. To all the parents of school-age children…may the force be with you for the next couple of weeks! You got this!

Add rice mix plus as much water as the mix calls for. Stir and bring to a boil. Put the lid on and turn heat down to low. Cook according to the rice mix directions (usually 20-25 minutes).
