Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, finely chopped or 1 tsp dried

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven or pot on the stove. Add chicken breasts, seasoning with salt & pepper and searing for 2-3 minutes each side until lightly browned, then remove from heat. Without wiping pot clean, add celery, carrots, onions, sauteeing for 3-4 minutes until fragrant and scraping up any chicken bits from the bottom of the pot as you go.
