    Chicken Risotto

    The best thing with this recipe is that you can add other ingredients if you wish such as mushrooms and vegetables, just make sure you cut them to a size that will cook in the time.

    Ingredients:

    200 g Risotto (Arborio) Rice
    2 large chicken breasts - cubed
    1 litre of chicken or vegetable stock - this must be hot. (A stock cube in boiling water will do)
    1 Garlic clove - chopped
    1 Onion - chopped
    Half a Red Pepper - sliced
    Half a Green Pepper - sliced
    10 g Butter
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Method:

    In a large frying pan saute the onion and garlic in the butter until soft.
    Add the chicken pieces and seal over until lightly browned.
    Add the pepper and saute for one minute.
    Add the rice and stir to coat well in the butter
    Add a ladle full of the hot stock - need not be exact and if you haven't got a ladle then about half a cup full should be about right.
    Simmer until the stock is absorbed then add another ladle full.
    Continue in this way until the chicken is cooked and the rice is soft, tender and creamy but the grains are still firm in the centre. (You might not need ALL the stock)
    Add seasoning to taste

    • Quick Tortellini Pasta in a Creamy Sauce
      Pauline
      This recipe was sent in by a reader - thank you.

      We tried this recipe using Morrison's Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini. Recipe worked well but needed approx. half a pint of milk. Sauce was a little bland and next time I think I'd add some herbs for a bit more flavour. Didn't have any cream so that might have made a difference if added.
      Overall it was a nice recipe, extremely quick to make so ideal for a rush meal. Made quite enough for two people, it's very filling.

      Tirumisu

      Absolutely delicious - thanks John and Wendy for this recipe.

      No cooking required but a fridge to chill it in is useful.

      It’s not just pasta for which we have to thank the Italians. Their sensational Tirumisu – literally “pick-me-up” – is one of the world’s best desserts. A delicious combination of sponge layer and creamy filling, flavoured with coffee and Marsala, Tiramisu should not be missed!
