How to Make Arroz amarillo Con Pollo (Yellow Rice with Chicken):

  4. Return the chicken to the same pot and add the broth, tomato sauce, Bijol, bay leaf, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  5. Add the rice and mix well until completely submerged. Cook until boiling and lower the heat.
  6. When the rice has absorbed some of the liquid, cover and simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked.
  7. Add the frozen peas in the last five minutes of cooking.To finish, garnish with the peppers and the petit pois .
