White pepper, to taste

1 pound long grain rice, washed and strained

1 cup asparagus tips, cooked

1/2 cup dry white wine

  1. Place chicken, onion, carrot, bacon rinds and clarified butter in stockpot. Cover and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes to steam. Add cold water to cover by 1-inch. Add bay leaf, increase heat and bring to boil, uncovered. Skim foam from surface, reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for 1 hour.

  5. Strain liquid from cooled chicken meat into medium saucepan. Add 2 1/2 cups water and rice, cooking until done. Add 1/2-cup asparagus spears and 1/2 shrimp to rice.
  6. Add chicken meat, remaining asparagus and remaining shrimp to sauce. Add wine and heat through gently. To serve, lay chicken and sauce over rice. Dust with parsley and cayenne.
