Nicaraguan Taste + Arroz A La Valenciana

Derivative from the Paella Valenciana, another great bond between cultures represented in a dish. Often made for parties Arroz A La Valenciana is one very delicious dish, just right for any occasion where you have many guests.

Delicious and it makes you feel satisfied with just a small portion, served with bread this is a piece of cake when it come to difficulty and it's something you can make together with your family, friends etc...  

serves 6

For this you will need

One can of petit puas
500g Rice
A quarter of a onion
A quarter of a green bell pepper
3 Medium carrots
600g Chicken breasts
400g Tomato sauce
5 tbs Worcestershire sauce
4 tbs Mustard 
2 tbs Butter
2 Garlic cloves
4 Hot dogs
Salt to taste

To cook

First cut your chicken breasts in big chunks as usual, and in a medium pot with water place your chicken chunks put them to boil, remove any foam that appears and when you're done removing the foam and in your onion, garlic, bell pepper and salt to taste

Continue to boil for 5 mins in a medium heat the and take out the chicken and place in a bowl to cool.

 Meanwhile is cooling, get chopping your carrots make very small cubes but not too small because if you chop them too small they will puree and you want them visible, slice your hot dogs as shown in the picture below.

Once you're done proceed to mince up the chicken slices, as with the carrots do not mince them too thin you want to taste the chicken

Make your rice here's is the link to how to make rice once you're done come back to continue the recipe

Add the tomato and worcestershire sauce with the mustard add a knob of butter as shown in the picture and mix in. Boil your chopped carrots for 3 mins in a medium high heat, rinse them well (do so with the petit puas)add your petit puas also your sliced hot dogs and mix well everything.

Once you mixed everything it should look like this, it contains a lot of tomato sauce so be quite generous with it and don't be scared by the amount of tomato sauce.

After this step you are very near to finish.

Add oil to a wide and deep pan (a wok should be fine) and add the chicken mix saute the chicken a little to get some color on it, do this for 4 to 6 mins in a medium heat then add your previously cooked rice.

Stir well until  the rice is no longer white, the rice should be a little bit sloppy just like a paella.

Turn off the heat and serve with white bread.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and if you like it then why not share it and like it.
