    2 lbs. chicken
    1 onion, medium sized, chopped fine
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    10 oz. jar stuffed green olives
    5 oz. jar capers
    4 oz. jar pimentos
    1 T. cilantro, chopped fine
    28 oz. can Diced tomatoes
    15 oz. can tomato sauce

    2 pkgs.Sazon with achiote
    Adobo to taste (spanish seasoning consisting usually of salt, pepper, oregano and garlic)
    3 cups rice, long grained
    3 cups water (use liquid from olives, capers and pimento)


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).
