Instant Pot Arroz con Pollo – made in a fraction of the time! This Spanish version is infused with saffron and smoked paprika and full of amazing flavor! See notes for stove top version. Please read recipe notes about the “Burn Error” before starting.
If making on the stove top, follow same directions, but perhaps brown the thighs first before nestling into the rice. Bring to a simmer, cover, cook on low until rice is cooked through. (25-35 minutes??).
Make sure to rinse the rice- which will add a bit more water.
*** If getting the burn error- scrape up any brown bits using a wood spoon to get into ALL those corners! The error is not for a lack of moisture, but from browned areas on the bottom of the pot itself. You must scrape them or rub them off. A squared-off, wood spatula is ideal. Then Retry. Adding any more liquid may result in mushy rice, but feel free to, if you feel you absolutely must.
