I even fill up my car there. I mean, theres no way Im turning away that extra gas discount I get points for whenever I go through the checkout. ot to mention its only 1 mile away from my house. Cha-ching.
Thats why this year Im beyond thrilled to be a Kroger blogging ambassador, where I will becreating and sharing recipes featuring all sorts of products from Krogergrocery stores for my family, and for yours.
Were starting our year-long partnershipoff with a mega dose of Spanish-cha-chaflavor, and routing ourselves to the cuisine of Spain to celebrate Krogers Taste of Spain event beginning April 3. Im sharing my version of Spanish Chicken withRice, traditionally called Arroz con Pollo, dosed up with the tang of authentic Spanish chorizo, saffron and green olives.
In this recipe weused bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. If you prefer the boneless and skinless variety, go ahead and use them instead. The difference is mainly only in presentation. SautÃ© the chicken thighs in the pan to create a nice fond. What the heck is a fond? Its the browned deliciousnessleft in thebottom of the pan after youve seared your meat. The stuff you pick at and eat because its ALL THE FLAVOR. Hold onto your fond. Hold fast. And deglaze.
Rice is lightly browned in the pan before being doused with wine, chicken broth and diced tomatoes. I shopped my Kroger aisles for a selection of their Kroger brand and Simple Truth brand for my mix.
What gives this dish its distinctly Spanish flavor are smoked paprika and saffron. Saffron can be a spendy ingredient but it also lasts for a really, really long time. I have a small box a friends father brought back to me from Spain over 12 years ago that werejust now finishing up. Thats not a bad return on investment.
Weadded garbanzo beans and Spanish chorizo, sliced into coins. Spanish chorizo is a dry cured sausage with a flavorful kick. I most often find Mexican chorizo available but the difference lies in Spanish chorizo is more like a salami and Mexican chorizo is more like a loose sausage.
Look for the Spanish version of chorizo sausage for this recipe. During Krogers Taste of Spain event youll be abletofind the authentic Spanish chorizo and other Spanish productsin their stores for that authentic savory flavor.

You know were all about keeping things simple but delicious around here and I think we can all agree nothing is quite as easy as a one pot meal. Ill admit I used to be a skeptic. It took some convincing and a few really good recipes to show me the light. I was just never sure that the rice or noodles would really cook all of the way through. Minute Rice helped me get over my fears. It gives youÂ great-tasting, fluffy white rice in just 5-10 minutes, depending on the type of rice you choose. Now here I am a few years later and one pot meals like this One Pot Mexican Chicken and Rice are weekly occurrences at my house.
Now I usedMinuteÂ® White Rice. Its enriched, precooked long grain white rice that cooks in just 5 minutes but Minute Rice has lots of other options too. TheirMinuteÂ® Whole Grain Brown Rice is precooked parboiled 100% whole grain brown rice with the same nutritional values as regular long cooking brown rice but ready in just 10 minutes! It has a great rich nutty flavor that I love. If you want to try something a little difference than just rice they also haveMinuteÂ® Multi-Grain Medley . Det er en blanding fire, glutenfri, korn: brun ris, thailandsk rød ris, vild ris og quinoaand det har også en lidt nutty smag og en anden tekstur med den vilde ris og quinoa. Det er pre-portioned i fire separate bagsto gør forberedelsen nemt og det koger på 10 minutter. Hvis du bruger en af dem, skal du bare sørge for at tilføje den ekstra 5 minutter til at lave risen helt.
