Asopao de Pollo y Gandules🇵🇷

Asopao is one of my favorite soups, I make it with seafood, beef, and chicken. Many call it a stew because of the thick consistency but I call it soup.

The ingredients are rice, seasonings, and meat. This is so delicious and you can enjoy it on winter or rainy days. As for my family and I enjoy soup in any weather lol.

You can find Asopao in many Latin restaurants but here is a recipe for you to try at home if you rather make it.

With all of that flavor in one pot, this flavorful dish is guaranteed to become your new favorite chicken soup with rice.


1 tbsp olive oil

2-3 boneless chicken breasts, chopped into bite sized pieces

1 tsp adobo
