How to make it
- Put the rice, water and butter in a covered saucepan and cook according to directions.
- Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven (or other large pot) on medium heat.
- Put in each vegetable, stir, in order and let soften for a minute or so before the next vegetable. Add salt and pepper.
- After putting in the mushrooms, cook and stir for about 5 minute until the mushrooms are dark and have released most of their moisture.
- Add the dry white wine and let reduce (about 6 or 7 minutes).
- Add the thyme and the chicken broth and let come to a simmer.
- Add the water and let it come back up to a simmer.
- Total cooking time should be about the same as the rice (about 50 min., so my times could be off).
- Add the rice and the chicken and let simmer for a few minutes.
- Serve with crackers or yummy crusty bread.
