Healthy Arroz Con Pollo

Arroz con pollo is a traditional dish of Spain and Latin America, closely related to paella. Authentic Arroz Con Pollo, or chicken and rice, is the ultimate one-pan meal. It's a classic dish that I created a healthier spin on that I now love to cook for my family. This quick and easy dish is prefect for a busy weeknight.

Arroz con Pollo: Serves 4

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1¾ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • ¼ tsp each: salt & pepper (Optional)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 scallion, minced

  • 4 cups cauliflower “rice”

  • 1½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 40 green pitted olives

  • ½ cup green beans, cut into ¼-inch pieces


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.

  • Roast chicken in oven until internal temperature reaches 165°F, about 20 minutes.

  • Once chicken breasts are cooked, remove from oven and set aside to rest.

  • Meanwhile, combine all of the remaining ingredients in a pot.

  • Simmer on low for 8 to 10 minutes.

  • When finished, slice the chicken and serve with cauliflower “rice.”

  • Tip: For a more traditional take on this dish, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and combine with the remaining ingredients in a pot (instead of roasting).

  • Simmer on medium heat for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
