ASOPAO DE POLLO

Category:    Chicken, Pork, Rice
Yield: 6 servings
 
      1 lb Frying chicken                  1 1/2 qt Water
           Salt to taste                       1 tb Capers
      1 ts Dried oregano                     1/4 c  Diced pimento-stuffed olives
      1    Clove garlic, minced                2 c  Uncooked rice
      2 tb Lard                                     Garnish:
    1/3 c  Diced cooked ham                    1 c  Cooked peas
      1 md Onion, diced                        4    Pimentos, julienne
      2 md Tomatoes, diced                   1/2 c  Grated parmesan cheese
      1    Green bell pepper, diced       
 
  Serves 6 to 8. Wash the chicken and cut it into serving pieces. Mix the
  salt, oregano, and garlic together and rub it onto the chicken pieces.
  
  Heat the lard in a heavy saucepan. Brown the chicken in the lard and then
  add the diced ham, onion, tomatoes, and green pepper.
  
  Lower the heat, cover the saucepan, and simmer the mixture for 30 minutes.
  
  Remove the pan from the heat; when the chicken is cool enough to handle,
  remove the meat from the bones, and replace it in the pot.
  
  Add the water, capers, and olives and cook for 5 minutes. Add the rice,
  stir, and simmer until the rice is tender but still slightly moist.
  
  Serve at once, garnished with the cooked peas and pimento strips, and
  sprinkled with the Parmesan cheese. The asopao must be served immediately,
  otherwise it will lose its characteristic soupiness.
