Dinner: Creamy Chicken and Rice (Plov) – Natasha’s Kitchen

(upbeat music) – Hey everyone, it’s Natasha
of NatashasKitchen.com and today we’re gonna make a
one-pot creamy chicken and rice. This is a combination
of an Italian risotto and a plov, it’s the best of best worlds. Make this and your family will think you’re the best cook in the world. I’m not just saying that. You guys are gonna love this recipe. The prep is quick and easy. Start by finely chopping a medium onion and grating two large carrots. (upbeat music) Slice chicken thighs
into bite-size pieces. Place a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and
two tablespoons of butter. As soon as the butter melts, add onion, carrots, a teaspoon of salt, and saute until it’s soft and golden. (upbeat music) Add the chopped chicken along with another teaspoon of salt, a 1/4 teaspoon of pepper,
and two bay leaves. The bay leaves are nice if you have them, but if you don’t, don’t freak out. It’ll still turn out delicious. Saute, stirring occasionally,
for about five minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Increase to high heat and
add one cup of white wine. Now boil down the wine,
scraping the bottom of the pot until most of the liquid has evaporated. That looks perfect. It’s time to add five cups of
hot low-sodium chicken broth. Next, stir in two cups of dry jasmine rice and top with a whole head of garlic. Now here’s the easiest
garlic prep you’ve ever seen. Slice off the end to expose
the cloves and that’s it. Push it right into the
center of your rice. Bring that to a rolling boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until
the rice is cooked. On to the finishing touches. Remove the garlic and quickly stir in two tablespoons of butter. Finally, stir in the Parmesan and parsley. Yum. Woo! I seriously love my job. (laughs) Here we go for the taste test. Mm, I love that there’s a
little bit of cheese pull here. Oh, yum yum yum. Little bit of parsley. Okay, here we go. Mm hm. So creamy and cheesy. You can taste the white
wine, but it’s subtle. It just adds so much flavor, amazing. You guys are gonna love this. If you guys enjoyed this recipe, give me a thumbs up below. Make sure to subscribe

  1. HI, could you please also mention Wine/Alcohol alternatives please? i'm a Muslim and we dont consume alcohol

  2. I made it and it was absolutely delicious. The only thing I did differently was I didn’t really cook down the white wine cause I really like the taste of it in chicken, and I left the garlic in. Also didn’t add the Parmesan to the whole thing just individual bowls as I ate it so the pot wouldn’t be sticky.

  3. What I love about Natasha is that her video is nice and short but yummy food, I have neither the time nor the patient to watch 10-15 minutes cooking video, so thank you Natasha.
