What goes with chicken and rice? I love to pair this dish with my Simple Homemade Caesar Salad or add extra veggies to it by making this Simple Sauteed Vegetables Recipe. If you enjoy this recipe, you also have to try our Chicken and Rice Casserole! It’s delicious.

HOW TO MAKE THIS ONE POT CHICKEN AND RICE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Place a heavy soup pot on the stove and turn to medium heat.

STEP TWO: Add olive oil and butter to the pot.

STEP THREE: Once butter is melted, add grated carrots, diced onion, minced garlic, and 1 tsp salt. Sautée until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

STEP FOUR: Add chicken to the pot. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of salt and ½ tsp of pepper. Stir occasionally so that the chicken browns on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes.

STEP FIVE: Turn the heat to high and add 1 cup of white wine. Cook until most of the wine has evaporated, stirring occasionally.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store any leftover one pot chicken and rice in the fridge in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days. When reheating, I like to add in just a bit of chicken broth to keep the rice moist. This makes for a great leftover meal!

    Great recipe, I was wondering can it be done up until cooking it on the stove and instead baked in the oven?! I want to use my Dutch oven and wondering cooking times for the rice and chicken in oven

    Thanks!!
