A perfectly cooked bowl of white rice is deceptively simple. With only two required ingredients, it's either make it or break it. Computerized rice cookers have become quite popular in recent years, but our kitchen is free from uni-taskers and we'd rather have our counterspace is always at a premium. We cook our rice the old fashioned way--steamed on the stovetop.
Chicken and yellow rice is one of our favorite Cuban comfort foods. In areas with large Cuban populations you can find yellow rice packages in the supermarket, but we prefer to make our own. This recipe departs from tradition in that it's technically a risotto, but keeps all the same great flavors (along with the texture that risotto is famous for). We add black beans to make it an entire meal in a bowl.
