Cut chicken into pieces and saute w/ sofrito made of tomatoes, onions, garlic, stuffed olives, pimento, capers, cilantro, tomato sauce and little bit of wine vinegar. (Go easy on the vinegar tasting as you go.) Add 3 cups of rice and saute rice together with chicken/sofrito mix for 5-10 minutes. Add 1 cup of water for every cup of rice. Cook without a lid until water has evaporated. Lower heat, cover first with a dish then with a lid and cook at low heat until done (don't know why but that's how my nana did it).
