Recipe for cooking Rice with Puerto Rican Chicken

10 Ingredients
3 1/2 Lbs of chicken, sliced
3 Cups long grain rice
3 1/2 cups of water
1/2 Of a cup of basic sofrito (1/4 of onion, green pepper, chopped and 3 cloves of crushed garlic)
1/2 Teaspoon ground cumin
2 Tablespoons of olives with capers
1 Teaspoon seasoning containing cilantro and achiote
2 Oz of tomato ketchup
2 Tablespoons of oil (to soften the chicken)
Salt And black pepper to taste

Rice with chicken is a typical dish of Latin American cuisine, with some regional variations depending on the country. It must be understood that even though they are the same ingredients it is prepared in different ways; In Puerto Rico, for example, we prepare it by combining rice and chicken in a cauldron and season it with our famous sofrito (onion, green pepper, and garlic, among other spices). This simple – but delicious – the typical dish is the favorite of all Puerto Ricans and the most prepared in the homes. It is popular for its easy processing and why there is no need to use ingredients that take us out of the budget. Although the title says Puerto Rican style, I must clarify that each family has its own version of this recipe.
