Stars of the Show:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 carrot, grated

Warm the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink and the juices run clear. During the last few minutes of cooking, add the garlic and onion.
When the chicken is done, stir in the carrot, lemon zest, broth, parsley, olives, and rice. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
