Arroz con Pollo, like the name suggests is rice with chicken. What I love about this dish however is how moist and flavourful both the rice and chicken are. The rice and chicken are cooked in beer, with a lot of spices, minced carrots, and a ton of coriander. The dish is served hot with a load of cut cold purple onions on the side. This dish for me, reminds me of our Persian dish called Akhni - which is also a rice and often chicken dish that is also moist and made with a lot of spices, but instead of beer adding the moisture it is yogurt, and instead of so much coriander we use a lot more tomato. True comfort food at its best. And like comfort foods, the best I've had has been cooked by a mum at home in Peru.
