Use brown rice, or a mix of brown and wild.

From The Gift of Southern Cooking, a great cookbook: brown the chicken pieces slowly in butter (or olive oil). When browned, put a stalk of celery and a small onion, halved, in the pan with the chicken pieces. Turn heat to low, cover and leave it alone for 20 minutes. The chicken and vegetables will give up quite a bit of liquid. Salt and pepper to taste. Add the rice and some additional liquid if needed. Cover and simmer until the rice is done. Check it in 30 minutes. If the rice isn't ready, check to see if the chicken pieces have cooked through. They should have. If so, remove them, replace the cover and continue to cook the rice on low heat until done. Put the chicken back to warm up, if necessary, before serving. I like highly flavored food usually, and this is subtle but delicious. Great comfort food.

Poach a boneless, skinless, chicken breast in low sodium chicken stock, remove and refrigerate. Add water to the now double stock, until it adds up to 1.5 cups, add in 1 cup rice, heat to high, bring to boil, reduce to simmer, cover, simmer for 18 minutes, remove lid and fluff rice. Cover, rest for 5 minutes. Remove chicken from freezer and cut into small pieces, add rice to a bowl, top with chicken pieces, drizzle with toasted sesame oil.
