Units Scale
  • 2/3 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice (1/2 cup uncooked rice)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 whole white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms
  • 1 lb cooked chicken, shredded
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cilantro flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese


  1. Chop the carrots into small slices, remove the stem, and coat with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet (paid link). Bake the carrots for 20 minutes at 400 degrees, tossing at the halfway mark (10 minutes). Set to the side when done.
  2. Cook your rice according to instructions and set it to the side.
  3. Heat a cooking pot at medium heat. Add butter, chopped onions, and chopped celery, allowing them to cook for 2 to 3 minutes before adding the minced garlic. Continue to cook until the onions become translucent.
  4. Add the mushrooms to the pot and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add your roasted carrots, shredded chicken, chicken stock, sea salt, black pepper, cilantro flakes, garlic powder, ground cumin, and minced garlic to the pot.
  5. Bring the pot to a slight boil, then cover and lower heat to low heat cooking and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. Reduce heat to a simmer, then stir in your rice, heavy whipping cream, and grated parmesan cheese.
