  1. In a pot heat olive oil over medium-high. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Sauté 5 to 7 minutes, or until cooked through.
  2. Add onion and sauté 3 minutes. Stir in the carrots, celery and garlic and sauté 1 minute.
  3. Increase the heat to high and add the broth and rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Stir again, cover, and let simmer 15 to 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the broth is absorbed.
  4. Stir occasionally to keep the rice from sticking to the pot.
  5. Stir in the parmesan and parsley. Taste and add more salt, pepper, or any other desired seasonings.
