The Jesus Cooks Chicken & Rice

 
 
“Nobody Makes Netter ARROZ con POLLO the the JESUS Maann”
 
 
That’s right man. Nobody makes better Chicken and Rice than the Jesus. Jesus Qintana, nemesis of Walter Sobchak and The Dude cooks too, and he’s jealous of the Dude and his cookbook “GOT ANY KAHLUA,” so he’s publishing some recipes of his own, starting with the famed Cuban Arroz con Pollo, Cuban Style Chicken and Rice, a staple of Cuban Cusine, and a favorite of Jesus.

ARROZ con POLLO alla JESUS
 
 
INGREDIENTS :
 
  • 2 to 3 lbs. Chicken pieces (I prefer boneless, skinless, breasts, but always include thighs and/or drumsticks with bones and skin – they add to the flavor)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 1 bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 jar red diced pimientos (reserve a little bit for garnish)
  • 1 can peas (reserve about a third for garnish)
  • 1 can asparagus (cut up)
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Pepper
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Oregano
  • 2 cups dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Bitter Orange (powder or marinade)
  • Olive oil
  • 3 cups rice (long grain)
  • 1 tsp. Goya Seasoning con Azafran
  • 3 or 4 threads of saffron – crushed (this is optional)
1) Prepare the chicken broth
2) Coat chicken pieces with bitter orange spice or marinade along with the pressed garlic cloves and marinade for about an hour. (not necessary, but it’s awesome if you have the time)
3) Brown chicken in large frying pan in olive oil. After browning  the Chicken, remove and place in a large pot.
4) To make the Sofrito: sauté the onion & pepper in the frying pan (with the bits of garlic and olive oil) until soft, then add tomato sauce, pimientos, peas, asparagus (all with their liquid) salt, pepper, bay leaf, cumin, oregano, wine & broth.
5) Pour in the rice and add the Sazon Goya Azafron Seasoning and Saffron to color and flavor the rice.
6) Pour all of this over the chicken in the pot.
7) Bring to a boil, then lower to a fast simmer.
8) Cook on medium-low heat for about 40 minutes, then check it and stir it. Rice should be soft and liquid absorbed. If there’s still liquid, keep cooking, checking, & stirring.
9) Pour reserved peas and pimientos as a garnish over the finished arroz con pollo.

John Turturro
 
As “The JESUS” ROLLS AGAIN
 
aka JESUS QUINTANA
 
 
 
Yes The Jesus will be Rolling Again. But the Dude won’t. John Turturro is reprising his roll as Mexican-American bowling enthusiast Jesus Quintana in his new upcoming movie Going Places, a spin-off of the highly popular Cone Brothers film The Big Lebowski, starring Jeff Bridges as The Dude, John Goodman as Walter Sobchak, Julianne Moore as Maude Lebowski, David Huddleston as “The Big Lebowski,” Ben Gazzarra as pornographer Jackie Treehorn, Steve Buscemi as Donny, Sam Elliot as The Cowboy Stranger, Tara Reid as Bunny Lebowski, the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman as Brandt (The Big Lebowski’s Man Servant / Assistant) and of course John Turturro as “The Jesus” aka Jesus (pronounced HEY-soosh) Quintana.
 
This forthcoming movie (expected 2020) is not a sequel, but a spin-off of The Big Lebowski, starring Tarturro’s character Jesus Quintana (The JESUS). The movie, which was first titled The Jesus Rolls, features Tarturro as Jesus Quintana  in ‘Going Places,’ a film about a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser Jesus Quintana (The Jesus), their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.

Joel and Ethan Coen HAVE NOT ENDORSED the movie GOING PLACES as an Official Spin-Off of The BIG LEBOWSKI
 
The Coen Brothers only involvement is giving John Turturro permission to use the Big Lebowski character Jesus Quintana.
 
The character of Jesus Quintana was created by The Coen Brothers for the Big Lebowski Movie, it was John Turturro as an actor who came up with the eccentricities and mannerisms of his character “The Jesus”
 
Ethan and Joel Coen say, “John talks to us incessantly about doing a sequel of his character.” told Canada’s The STAR in 2013. “He even has a story worked out, which he pitched to us a few times. No I don’t see a future in it for us.”
 
Joel Coen says, “No, I don’t see it happening. I just don’t like sequels.”
