1 chicken (3 1/2 - 4 lbs.), cut into 8 pieces

® Adobo with Pepper, to taste

3 tbsp.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)

3/4 green bell pepper, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)

1 1/2 tsp.

1 1/2 cups CANILLA Extra Long Grain Rice

1 packet

Powdered Chicken Bouillon

1 packet Sazón
