Chicken and Peas Risotto

Pin It



Risotto is on top of the list when it comes to my favorite comfort dishes…..I have been enjoying eating and experimenting with

different flavors and variations of RISOTTO from the first day I tried this heavenly concoction.



It is hearty…..tasty and easy to make. You can add just about anything to your basic recipe….


Risotto is one of my go-to-meals when I am in a rush or my brain can’t think of anything else.


Last night I had about 35 minutes to make my kids hearty and filling dinner since it was a double after-school activities night….. Talk about pressure.



Luckily there is always Arborio rice in my pantry and as luck would have it couple of fresh chicken breasts in the fridge.

STEP 3: Cook Arborio rice for 1 to 2 minutes, then add wine and cook until evaporated. Reduce the heat to medium. Add in the hot stock, a few ladles at a time, and stir for a minute with each addition to get the starch and the creamy aspect.

    Oh that risotto sounds heavenly! I must say, I've never tried to make risotto myself because I always feel like people say it's difficult to get it the right consistency. Do you feel that way? Do you have any special tips or techniques?
