Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Season chicken all over with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a heavy 5-quart Dutch oven over medium high heat. Place chicken in Dutch oven and cook, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.

Add onions and cook until soft and golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and carrots and cook for 2 minutes more. Add wine, chicken broth, rosemary, thyme and bay leaf and stir well. Return chicken, along with any accumulated juices, to the Dutch oven and spoon carrot mixture over the tops of the chicken. Cover and transfer to the oven. Cook until chicken is tender, about 1 hour. Spoon chicken, with its vegetables and sauce, over the brown rice and serve garnished with green onions.
