How to Make It

Step 1

Season the chicken as desired.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring often (Making sure the pot is hot before adding the chicken will help keep it from sticking). Remove the chicken from the saucepot.

Step 2

Add the remaining oil to the saucepot and reduce the heat to medium. Add the onions, garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for 3 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in the broth, tomatoes and cumin and heat to a boil. Stir in the rice and olives. Return the chicken to the saucepot. Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Season to taste.

Recipe Tips

  • Helper: To shred fresh basil, select leaves that are not bruised or wilted. Stack the leaves and roll up. Slice with a sharp knife into very thin strips.

    Spanish Chicken and Rice Soup

    I like spicy foods but this was one of the hotest dishes I've ever eaten. I would recommend to use way less red pepper, otherwise nice flavor.
