Heat the oil over moderately high heat in a large and deep-frying pan. Season the chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook the chicken 4 minutes on each side. Remove and pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pan.
Reduce the heat to low and add in the onion, ham and garlic to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes and stir occasionally. Add the bell peppers and cook until they start to soften, about 3 minutes more.
Add the broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, and the remaining 1 3/4 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper and bring to a simmer. Stir in the rice and add the chicken in an even layer. Simmer on low heat for 20 minutes and finish by sprinkling with parsley.
Transfer to plate and serve.
