Add water, wine, bouillon granules, garlic, and bay leaf to skillet. Cover and simmer slowly (for 3/4-pound thigh allow 45 minutes and for 1-1/4-pound thigh allow 60 minutes).
Add carrot pieces, onion, and uncooked rice. Cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes more or until turkey thigh is tender. Remove bay leaf. Transfer turkey mixture to a plate and sprinkle with paprika. Makes 1 serving.
