Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 large carrots shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tsp salt divided
  • 2 lb chicken breast boneless and skinless, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 5 cups hot chicken broth
  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions
 

  • Place heavy soup pot on the stove and turn to medium heat.
  • Add olive oil and butter to the pot.
  • Once butter is melted add grated carrots, diced onion, minced garlic, and 1 tsp salt. Sautee until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add chicken to the pot. Sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Stir occasionally so that chicken browns on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  •  Turn heat to high and add 1 cup white wine. Cook until most of the wine has evaporated stirring occasionally.
  • Add hot chicken broth then stir in rice. Bring to a boil, cover the pot, and reduce heat to low until the rice is fully cooked. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Turn off heat. Add chopped parsley and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Keep covered to remain warm if you are not serving right away.

Notes

Tip: For additional flavor, try adding Italian seasoning and/or basil to the recipe.
