DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan combine the chicken, onion, and chicken stock, bring to a simmer, cover and cook over low heat until the chicken is tender (about 45 minutes).
  • Lift the chicken out onto a platter and set aside.
  • Strain the stock through a sieve set over a bowl.
  • Discard the solids and skim off as much fat as possible from the stock.
  • Rinse out the saucepan and return the stock to it.
  • Add the rice, tomatoes and carrots.
  • Taste for seasoning, add salt if necessary and freshly ground pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook until the rice is tender, about 25 minutes.
  • When the chicken is cool enough to handle remove the skin and bones and cut into strips about 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches.
  • Return the chicken to the saucepan with the ham and cook just long enough to heat through.
  • Add the parsley and serve.
