Entice Your Taste Buds with BistroMD's Arroz Con Pollo

Arroz con pollo is what’s on the menu, and dinner is about to get interesting.

With its bold flavors and colorful palette, arroz con pollo is a popular dish among Spanish-speaking nations, and each country has its own edition of the classic dish.

Arroz con pollo has been around as early as the 8th century, and was introduced into Spain’s culture by the Moors, during their invasion in 711.

It appears that arroz con pollo was first created by Moors, due to their very communal cuisine culture. Their favorite dish to pass around the table was arroz con pollo, which was prepared in a giant pot, and cooked family style. This version of the popular dish was seasoned with flavorful spices like coriander, cumin and saffron. These herbs are also traditionally found in many of the dishes Moors created throughout their unique cuisine history.

Arroz con pollo is now a favorite in many Spanish-speaking nations, including Cuba, Puerto Rico and Columbia. It has also become a very popular dish in the United States as well.

The chefs at BistroMD have taken the traditional flavors of arroz con pollo, and created a dish just for you that is both healthy and delicious.

Our arroz con pollo is made with the most lean and tender white meat chicken, simmered in a mix of traditional spices, and cooked with a blend of Latin-style tomatoes.

Our chefs then season this dish with torn cilantro, and serve it over a bed of colorful and traditional yellow rice.
