Chicken and yellow rice~ sans the yellow dye

A few months’ ago, my mother gave me stacks of old cookbooks. In the stack of dusty and tattered bindings were titles ranging from diet fads of the 70’s (grapefruit diet, anyone?) to more modern gems like Nigella.

But. the diamond in the bunch was an old navy blue cloth covered binder, it’s once pointed corners now frayed, worn and rounded with time… bursting with handwritten recipes collected over a span of 70 years, small amber colored clippings from newspapers and magazines, and assorted labels from wine bottles, that were carefully soaked off and dried, and noted on in my grandmother’s old world penmanship, “Good” “Too Sweet” or “Excellent”.

    Small world! This recipe is almost identical to the one which my Florida mother-in-law had shared with me in the 70's ~ see Arroz con Pollo (Yellow) Rice and Chicken, which I posted on this site at <> Your aunt and my mom-in-law must have got it from the newspaper or one of those community or church cookbooks. Your aunt's recipe changes the 4 cups of water to a more flavorful water-broth-wine combination and a few other mini-differences. But we love, love, love the recipe. It' a family FAV!
