Asopao De Pollo - Caribbean Chicken and Rice

“I found this recipe in my Betty Crocker's International cookbook and thought it sounded pretty good. It is a chicken dish with rice, filled with spices, stewed tomatoes, capers, olives, ham, garlic, peas and more. I can't wait to try it myself. It could be a one dish meal or you could serve it with a salad. Hope you enjoy!”
