Ukrainian Plov

Ukrainian Plov
This is a favorite of ours in Russia. We like to eat it with sour cream. The thing about many recipes in Russia is they taste different depending on who makes it. Many eat this with lamb or pork instead of chicken. So if you would want to play with the recipe, please do! And of coarse, please let me know what you think or ways you like it better! :)

1 pound chicken breast, cut into little pieces
Olive oil or whatever oil you like to use
1 onion, finely chopped
1 or 2 large carrot, grated (depending on your taste)
2 cups white rice, rinsed well and drained
 2 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup ketchup
2 cups of water
1 can chicken broth
1 teaspoons salt
black pepper to taste

How to make Plov (Rice Pilaf):
1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat
2. Saute chicken until golden and cooked through
3. Add onion to the skillet and saute about 3 minutes
4. Add carrots to the skillet and saute 2 more minutes
5. Add butter and ketchup and stir
6. Once the butter melts, add chicken mixture, rice, broth, water  and seasonings to a large pot.
7. Mix well and cover with a tight fitting lid on medium low heat for around 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
