  • Cook bacon in large skillet on medium-high heat 5 min. or until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet, reserving 1 Tbsp. of the drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels; set aside. Place tomatoes in blender. Add water; blend until tomatoes are smooth. Cook reserved drippings until heated through; stir in tomato sauce. Add rice and pigeon peas; stir. Bring to boil; cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 20 min. or until rice is tender.
  • Meanwhile, add chicken, skin-sides up, to large nonstick skillet; cover. Cook 5 min.; turn chicken. Cook, uncovered, an additional 7 to 9 min. or until chicken is cooked through and skins are golden brown. Mix annatto paste, mayo and garlic.
  • Stir bacon into rice mixture; spoon onto serving plate. Top with chicken and annatto sauce.

Special Equipment Needed


Substitute pork, such as cubed pork loin, for the chicken.

Special Extra

For a more traditional Puerto Rican rice with gandules, add a fresh sofrito of finely chopped green peppers, cilantro and garlic to the blended tomatoes before using as directed.
