Preparation -- 5 minutes

Peel the onion and garlic cloves and cut as fine as possible, or you can also use thin onion rings. Remove any excess fat or muscle from the chicken fillets and chop them into bite-size pieces.  

Fill a medium-sized pan with water and salt and bring to a boil. Cook the rice according to the package.
