From the Test Kitchen

Arroz con pollo, or rice with chicken in Spanish, is never called chicken with rice. That’s because this dish focuses on the savory seasoned yellow rice that’s deeply flavorful. In Latin American dishes like this one, the flavor comes from the sofrito, a mixture of aromatic vegetables that cooks down until it’s concentrated and almost sauce-like.
