  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large carrots, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 5 cups hot chicken broth
  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • ¼ cup fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese


  • Place a heavy soup pot on the stove and turn it to medium heat.
  • Add the olive oil and butter to the pot.
  • Once the butter is melted, add grated carrots, diced onion, minced garlic, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Saute until tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the chicken to the pot. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Stir occasionally so that chicken browns on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Turn the heat to high and add 1 cup of white wine. Cook until most of the wine has evaporated, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the hot chicken broth, then stir in the rice. Bring to a boil, cover the pot, and reduce the heat to low until the rice is fully cooked. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat. Add the chopped parsley and ½ cup parmesan cheese. Keep covered to remain warm if you are not serving it right away.


  • For additional flavor, try adding Italian seasoning and/or basil to the recipe.
  • You could use leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken you pick up at the grocery store instead of raw chicken for a great way to reduce prep time.
  • If you are using leftover chicken instead of raw, you can skip to Step Five.
