Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 pound chicken breasts boneless and skinless cut into long strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 leeks sliced or chopped
  • 2 cups mushrooms chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or saucepan over medium high heat. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • Add the butter to the same skillet and melt. Once the butter has melted and is hot, add the leeks and mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes until the leeks are soft. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the wine, heavy cream, rice and chicken broth to the saucepan. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary. Stir everything together, cover with a lid and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat. Add the chicken back to the pan, cover and cook for another 5 or 10 minutes or until the rice is cooked and has absorbed most of the liquid
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.

Notes

Chicken drumsticks or thighs can be used for this recipe.
 
If you find that the chicken isn't browning to your liking, cook the strips in batches.
 
If you use brown rice for this recipe, use and extra 1/2 cup of chicken broth and increase the cooking time by 10-12 minutes. Taste for doneness and add more broth if needed.
 
Feel free to use cream of mushroom soup instead of heavy cream to amp up the mushroom favor.
