Lucia Santos Hernandez says arroz con pollo is her family's favorite meal, hands down.
That goes for both the family she grew up in, and the family she heads as an adult.
"Back when I was young, my mom would buy a whole chicken. We knew what we were having for dinner."
It was going to be arroz con pollo, or chicken with rice.
"She would cut it all up; she used all of it."
For the next step, Hernandez' mom would fry up the chicken - "she used Crisco shortening - then remove it from the skillet. Mom then added just a touch more of shortening. This was to fry the rice to a golden brown.
"I loved watching my mom cook. She added lots of love. She ground all the spices fresh. The whole house smelled great."
The dish just invited seemed to build family closeness.
