In a pestle we crush the garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
We make small incisions in the hen and marinate it with these pounded ingredients inside and out the hen. I recommend you do this the day before and let the hen in the fridge.
It is important for rice cooker that at 180 °. Then with olive oil fry the onion, garlic, green pepper, oregano and stir-fry for about 5 minutes or until onions and peppers are clear and bright.
Add the rice and fry for 1 minute or less. Shaking well for the rice grip the flavors.
We add the black beans and fry for 1 minute more or less. Shaking well so all the ingredients known each other and became friends.
Add the chicken broth. Careful when adding the liquid. Remember that rice is already holding the juices of the other ingredients. Add it slowly until rice is just covered. (About 1/8” over)
This is the level of chicken broth... just above the rice.
Once the rice has absorbed the broth, we mix and separate the rice from the edges forming a small mountain, this is to avoid the rice stick to them and get smoked. Cover it and let it cook for about 15-18 minutes over low heat.
Once you have the rice ready (remember that we will not cook it completely) proceed to fill the hen. I also add butter... just because I like ;-).
We tie or sew the hen so that the filling stay inside.
In a skillet with olive oil and butter we sear the hen on both sides to medium-high heat. About 2-4 minutes per side.
Here is how it looks. I do it to seal the flavors of the marinate and give the hen an extra crispy.
After seared on both sides, we proceed to put it into a pre-heated oven to 325° for 1 hour and 45 minutes approximately.
And there you have it. It took 1:40 hours. And we serve with vegetables or salad.
How good does this recipe look to you?
