Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. bone-in, skin on chicken thighs*
  • 3 Tbsp. Knorr® Tomato Bouillon with Chicken flavor, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped

  1. Season chicken with 2 tablespoons Knorr® Tomato Bouillon with Chicken flavor. Heat oil in large deep skillet over medium-high heat and brown chicken, in batches if necessary, turning once, about 4 minutes; remove chicken with slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Add onion, tomatoes, celery, green pepper, cilantro and oregano to chicken drippings in skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until onion is golden and tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in water, frozen vegetables, chicken and remaining 1 tablespoon Bouillon and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in rice; reduce heat to low and simmer covered, until rice is tender and chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 25 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken and set aside until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Shred chicken into bite-size pieces; discard skin and bones. Stir chicken into rice.
