Ok  start making Diablos con Pollo this where you’ll season the chicken. Since it is made in one pot, you’re gonna start with the water. Add 3 cups of water. we’re gonna add first all of the aromatics and vegetables. That’s one teaspoon of garlic, half a teaspoon of turmeric, teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of pepper, and add a couple bay leaves, some oregano.

Add the onions, grated red pepper, thinly sliced tomatoes which you’re gonna dissolve and they’re only gonna be all the aromatic flavor and a little bit of the color and add tomato paste.

For the mixed vegetables, cook them separately and mix it with the Italian dressing. If you don’t know how to make an Italian dressing, click this link:

Drop the oregano and then mix them all together. we’re gonna kind of season the chicken here for a minute. Place the chicken in the pot, turn it around a little bit into the mixture making sure the every part gets dipped and then take it out because we’re gonna place it on top of the rice.

Now add the rice. Mix it them all together and then, place the all the chicken on top of it.

Ok, now that our chicken and rice mixture is done, remove the chicken from the pot and then add the vegetables that we flavored with the dressing. Mix it up and then put the cover of the pot back.

Now minced the chicken. You can use scissors if you wish or you can even use your hands to do this. You’ll find that the bones fall off easily and you don’t need any expertise of removing it. After it’s done, put the chicken back to the pot and mix it with the rice.
