One Pot Creamy Chicken and Rice
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1" pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups rice
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot, heat oil, then add chicken pieces and saute for 7 minutes, adding salt and pepper to taste. Add diced onion and saute for another 3 minutes. Add carrots, celery, and garlic. Increase the heat to high, and add chicken broth and rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until rice is cooked, stirring occasionally. Add parsley and cheese.
This was so very good! Each of my boys has a weeknight that they have to help cook. It was my younger son's turn to help make this. He got lots of compliments on this dish.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
From the rising of the sun to its going down,
the Lord's name is to be praised.
