Arroz de Braga (Portuguese Rice)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound chicken thighs, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 pound chicken drumsticks, boned and cut into pieces
  • 7 ounces cubed cooked ham
  • 2 smoked pork sausages, sliced
  • 2 links pork sausage, casings removed and sliced
  • 3 cups rice, rinsed and drained
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 3 leaves cabbage, sliced

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, chicken thighs, and drumsticks; cook and stir until starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Add ham, smoked sausages, and fresh sausages. Cook and stir until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
