"My mother used to make this comforting main dish to serve to a group," recalls Laurie Hobart of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. "When she became widowed, she converted the recipe to serve just herself. I often fix this simple stovetop supper when I'm eating alone."

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 medium carrot, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 cup cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, saute celery and onion in butter. Add broth, carrot, rice, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken and parsley. Cover and simmer 5-10 minutes longer or until the rice and vegetable are tender.
