This is a delicious meal, fantastic with a green salad. If you prepare it with brown rice, you'll need to increase the cooking time and amount of liquid.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in an oven proof pot large enough to hold all ingredients.
  3. Saute the sliced onions until browned, about 10 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and saute for another minute.
  5. Add the rice, stir to coat the grains with oil, and saute for a few minutes.
  6. Add the chicken, beef broth, white wine, thyme, and black pepper, and bring to a boil. Taste for seasoning. Add salt if needed (depends on the saltiness of the beef broth).
  7. Cover and place in the preheated oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken and rice are cooked to your liking.

This was a great Sunday dinner. I did make a few changes. I halved the recipe and used all beef broth (reduced sodium). It was great. I will caution, that it makes a lot of rice, even a half of a recipe. I will make this again. Thanks for the great recipe, Heather.
