From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Known as Arroz Con Pollo Chapiina and it is a very popular main dish much like a great chicken and rice casserole.
2 1/2 - 3 pounds skinless and boneless chicken pieces
In a heavy bottomed saute pan or large skillet, heat the oil. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and saute about 10 - 12 minutes,turning often to brown and cook them nicely. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside. Leave the cooking oil In the pan and saute the onion, garlic and tomato 1 - 2 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes and then add the carrots, olives, capers, broth and the chicken pieces. Bring to a boil, reduce to low heat, cover and simmer about 10 minutes and then add the peas. Cook, loosely covered, for another 15 - 20 minutes, stirring several times, until the rice is cooked and no longer "sticky". Garnish with the pimiento and egg slices and sprinkle with the grated cheese.
