Chicken & Mushroom Risotto

Here's my first recipe for the blog! Im making a quick early supper before we head out for some drinks this evening:

Ingredients (all per person)

125g fresh mushrooms, quartered
1 piece skinless chicken breast (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
300ml chicken stock
75g  arborio rice
50ml white wine
1/2 chopped onion
sprinkle grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley (optional)
salt & pepper to season

First Chop the onion: (I do this in my little whiz Cuisinart machine because its super quick & easy) then fry it in your non stick pan / wok.

Then chop the rest of the ingredients: Mushrooms, chicken (& some parsley if youd like).


Then simply combine all ingredients in your pan, and add a small amount of Chicken stock.

This next bit is the most important: your risotto must NEVER get stuck, and never have too much liquid in it, add this a little at a time.

Add a small amount of Parmesan

And the most important ingredient; White wine (make sure its a good one).

Test every now and again to see if the rice has softened.

Once ready for consumption (rice has mostly softened but is still a little solid)season with salt and pepper, and a sprinkle of parmesan, then serve with a cold glass of white wine or Prosecco if you'd prefer - I would!

 Its a simple and quick meal that will only take about 40 mins total, amd most of that is standing and watching ( i have myself a glass of wine or prosecco during this stage).

Enjoy :)
