The dish, which originated in Spain as a form of pilaf, is now a staple throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. The recipe here is the Aruban version.

  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 tbs chicken broth

Cook the rice. Put the chicken leg to boil with salt and pepper for 15 minutes. Once ready, shred the chicken from the bone. Fry the onion, green pepper, celery and tomato until it's golden brown. Add the shredded chicken and the cooked rice to the vegetables and mix thoroughly. Serve with a lettuce and tomato salad.
