RISOTTO ALLA CUORI DI CARCIOFO
Risotto Alla Cuori Di Carciofo
Risotto with Artichoke hearts. I woke up this morning with the "I feel like chicken tonight, chicken tonight" song going through my head. For the life of me, I cannot remember what product that little commercial jingle was trying to sell me, but I am in the mood for chicken. In particular, Chicken scaloppine which is nothing more than chicken piccata, minus the "piccata" (LemonCaper pan sauce). With that said, I needed a side dish, for a thin slice of chicken is not really a meal. Then it hit me... I want artichokes, but I don't want to go to all the trouble of boil them, not to metion the mess of eating them. Risotto is always a good answer. I have not made risotto for a while (Being in an "Everything can go on a pizza" phase) and scaloppine is SO unbelievably simple that it would be a nice counter point.
