Arroz con Pollo!!!

Tonight's dinner is Arroz con Pollo, it's a new recipe I'm trying so I'm eager to see how it turns out :)


2 t. ground cumin
2 t. dried oregano
1 t. kosher salt
1 t. black pepper
1 t. paprika
1/4 t. cayenne
11/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1/2 lb. ham, chopped
1 cup white onion, diced
1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
1 cup dry converted rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 cup frozen peas, thawed

Combine seasonings in a bowl, then rub the mixture over the chicken to coat. Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high, then add chicken; cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Add ham, onion, and garlic; saute 3 minutes.

Stir in rice, cook 1 minute, then deglaze with wine. Simmer until nearly evaporated, then add broth, tomatoes, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 20-25 minutes, or until rice is tender.

Add peas; cover and simmer 3 minutes more to blend flavors.
