Arroz con pollo—chicken with rice—just might be the most-cooked meal in the world. It’s a staple in a variety of cultures and cuisines across the globe and for good reason: The recipe’s typically straight-forward, and while it might take some time for the flavors to meld, the dish often comes together in one pan. Our version does all that, and more. Plus, a surprising ingredient ups the stakes: tart apples, such as Granny Smith, Braeburn, or Jonagold, provide a hit of moisture and a touch of sweetness against the chicken, green and yellow peppers, garlic, tomatoes, and paprika.
Give dinner a Southwestern flair with a lively salsa featuring apples, green chiles, cider vinegar, cilantro, and red bell peppers.
