Savory Chicken and Rice

chicken and riceNeed to make an easy meal this week for your family or potluck?  We loved this staple in my home growing up!   The buttery flavor of chicken and rice, combined with a great chicken stock, a splash of white wine  and the added elements of shredded chicken, onions, rice and a vegetable of your choice…what can I say but DELICOUS!

This makes a great quick potluck dish as well as one that satisfies when you need to pull something together in a hurry.  As with any special dish, be sure  to sauté the ingredients together gently to enhance the full hearty flavor of this dish.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:  1 stick unsalted butter, 2 onions, 4 carrots, 6 small chicken breasts, 2 cups of cooked rice, 1/4 cup of white wine, 1/2 cup of chicken stock and basil for garnish.

Boil chicken breasts until they cook through while sautéing butter, onion and carrots in a medium pan.  Remove chicken breasts when well done and shred into medium size pieces.  Add chicken breast to butter, onion and carrot mix gently until well combined.  Cook 1 cup of rice in water in microwave for about 10 minutes or until mildly softened.  Add rice to chicken breast mixture and pour in your chicken stock.  Allow the chicken stock to soak in, turn to heat to high for 1 minute while adding white wine.  Simmer for two minutes keeping a close watch and turn heart off.  Garnish with basil and enjoy!
