To get the best, you must use the best...this is where a pressure cooker comes handy.
First start by making the rice.(I'm using a rice cooker) Add the 3 cups of rice to your rice cooker.
After rinsing rice thoroughly, add 3 1/4 cups of water into container and place in rice cooker. Add salt to taste and a tablespoon of oil. Set to quick cook.
To make the fricase, Start with 3 or 4 peeled golden potatoes.
A 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 tbs veg. Or canola oil
Add oil to pressure cooker pot
Add chicken to your pot
Add adobo seasoning to your chicken
Add spanish cooking wine to the pot
Add lemon juice
You can also substitute sour orange for lemon juice(optional)
Very important! Add a liberal amount of salt.
Use any color bell pepper you prefer.
Add chopped bell pepper
Cut your potatoes into quarters and add to pot.
Add minced/chopped yellow onion
Add half a can of tomato sauce
Add half can of water
Add food coloring
Add complete seasoning
Give it a good mix
Add pot to pressure cooker and set for 35 min on high pressure.
Once timer is done, release pressure by opening valve. Wait for all the pressure to release before opening cooker. (Notice the red ball at the top will go down once pressure has dissipated)
Th red ball will lower once all pressure is released like so
Swimming pool of yummy goodness!
The end result, heavenly goodness!!
Please feel free to add any accompaniments to the dish such as soda crackers, spanish olives, etc. Variation: use dry chorizo instead of chicken.
