First things first, you’re going to need to get chicken, rice, and all the other ingredients if you want to make arroz con pollo.

Cook the Chicken.
Now, it’s time to get cooking. Dry your chicken, and season it with the adobo. Over medium, heat some oil in a large heavy pot, and cook the chicken, browning it on all sides. This should take 10 minutes, tops.
Putting It Together.
Now that the chicken is all cooked, take it out, and throw in the onions, peppers, garlic. Cook until it’s all soft, which should take about five minutes. Then, add your rice, bouillon, and sazon, stirring constantly until the rice is totally coated in oil, which should take about a minute. Then, add three cups of water, and bring it all to a boil. Now, put the chicken in the pot with some alcaparrado. Cover, reduce heat, and let it simmer until the all the water’s absorbed. The rice should be tender, and cooked thoroughly.
