Locrio De Pollo

Locrio De Pollo, or Dominican Chicken and Rice, is a dish that my mother and her side of the family always make whenever people come to visit. Not only is it a staple for traditional Dominican families, especially during the holidays, but it's certainly a staple for us because when we see that huge metal pot on the stove that means family and full bellies. Even though I have it all the time, I still love it a much as the very first time my grandmother made it for me (but that's also because I can never get it exactly like hers so).
