Lidia's Traditional Rice and Chicken??

I found your post while searching for what may be the same recipe. I still haven't found it. I wrote down the ingredients without amounts.

In a dutch oven, melt butter and add pestata (combination of chopped onion, celery and carrots).
Soften, then push to the sides to create a hot spot in the center of the pan. Add cubed skinless chicken thighs and some salt.
Add some white wine, bay leaf (1 fresh, 2 if dried).
Add the boiling stock, Arborio rice, and salt.
Cover, cook for 10 minutes (seems a little short?).
When ready, finish off with butter and parmesan, stir in and sprinkle with parsley.
