Ingredients

  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 tsp oil
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup short-grain brown rice
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1 Tbsp ají amarillo (optional but recommended. A Peruvian yellow chili, often sold pureed in jars)

Instructions

  1. Prepare veggies: Peel and dice onion and peel and crush garlic. Wash, deseed and dice bell pepper. Peel and dice carrots. Wash and dice celery.

  2. Prepare cilantro water: wash cilantro, shake excess water out a little and add to a blender, stems and all. Add water and blend until smooth and more more herb leaves float around.

  3. Prepare sofrita: Preheat a small pan over medium heat, add a dollop of oil and fry diced onion and crushed garlic until nice and brown. If you have, add Peruvian ají amarillo once onions are translucent.

  4. Crock Pot Prep: Add sofrita, brown rice, sea salt, pepper and cilantro water to crockpot and give it a quick stir. Add diced vegetables on top without mixing into the rice. Just smooth out into one layer. Then top everything with salted and peppered chicken thighs.

  5. Cook: Add the lid to the crock pot and seal it. Set the crock pot to high and adjust the timer to 3 hours. Ensure with a meat thermometer that the chicken’s internal temperature is at least at 165F.

  6. Serve: Use two forks to shred the chicken and mix everything well together. Season with more sea salt and pepper if necessary and plate.
