Why I Love This Recipe

ReciMeals are designed to be complete meals that need only be accompanied by a beverage, and sometimes a side salad or slice of bread. A ReciMeal provides significant amounts of at least three of the five MyPyramid food groups: about 1/2 cup of fruits, 1/2 cup of vegetables, 1 ounce equivalent of grain foods, 2 ounces or the equivalent of lean meat or beans or 1 cup or the equivalent of milk per recipe serving. As a convenient one-dish meal, this elegant dish can be an easy pantry meal on its own, or deliciously accompanied by a garden salad with crusty bread. Made with protein-rich canned chicken, it’s just as delicious with canned turkey or crabmeat.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sliced leeks
1 cup arborio rice
1 can (15 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup white wine
1 can (10 ounces) chicken, drained
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained
1/2 cup freshly grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese
1/4 cup chopped, fresh or 1 tablespoon dried savory
Salt and pepper, to taste


Directions

Heat oil in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add leeks; cook and stir for 5 minutes, until leeks are softened. Add rice; stir, coating rice with olive oil and leeks. Pour in broth and wine. Simmer covered until stock is absorbed and rice is still just slightly firm, about 20 minutes. Gently stir in chicken, artichokes, cheese and savory. Cover; let sit for five minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
