COOK chicken breasts in a medium pot in 8 cups of water, chicken broth concentrate, a third of the onion, 1 of the bay leaves and 3 cloves of garlic. Bring to a boil and cook over medium- low heat 40 minutes. Once cooked, remove chicken and strain and reserves the broth where you cook the chicken, you will use 7 cups of broth to prepare the rice.

Add the reserved 7 cups of chicken broth from cooking the chicken. Incorporate the rice, 1/2 tsp. of the paprika and season to the taste. Once it boils reduce heat to medium low. Cover and cook until the rice is completely cooked. MEANWHILE, in a large skillet add remaining oil, the remaining onion, the remaining chopped garlic, the paprika and the bay leave, olives, shredded chicken and tomato sauce. Simmer 20 minutes or until the liquid evaporates. PREHEAT oven 350F. You will need a rectangular 14 x9 or 13 x 9 inch baking dish (2 inches deep) which has been sprayed with cooking spray. Remember you are going to layer it as if it was a potato pie, lasagna or sandwich. Measure and reserve a 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture, 1/4 cup of the peas and a few of the pimiento strips. SPREAD a layer of rice in baking dish, top with the chicken mixture, then half of the cheeses and the peas.
