Arroz con Pollo (Rice with Chicken)

Ingredients: (4 servings)

2-3 pounds chicken pieces, drumstricks,

cup onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 large tomato, chopped

3 cups water

1 cup uncooked rice

1 tablespoon parsley, minced

2 tablespoons salt

teaspoon paprika

teaspoon black pepper

1-2 teaspoons hot curry powder (Indian curry)

1 bay leaf

Preparation:

Heat a bit of oil in Dutch oven. Brown chicken for approximately 5 minutes. Throw everything else into the Dutch oven. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for approximately 45 minutes or until thickest part of the chicken is tender.

The rice may not absorb all of the water, but that's OK -- what remains will thicken when it cools a bit.
