One Pot Chicken & Rice

I am a huge fan of any recipe that only gets one pot/pan dirty. This one accomplishes that & tastes amazing! I love that this uses some authentic Spanish seasoning to give it some amazing flavor. Sazon can be found in the in the spice aisles at your local supermarket. It is a great addition to soups, stews & meat dishes!
