Why I Love This Recipe

Convenience from your pantry – easy to make, good for you! With protein-rich, canned chicken on your shelf, you’re prepared to turn popular risotto into a hearty, protein-rich main dish. Just add a crisp, colorful salad and crusty Italian bread and dinner is complete!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small white onion, chopped
1 cup Arborio rice
1 can (15 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup white wine
1 can (8 ounces) peas, drained
1 can (6 ounces) chunk chicken, drained
1/2 cup chopped, fresh basil
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste


Directions

Heat olive oil in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir for 5 minutes, until onion is translucent. Add rice; stir, coating rice with olive oil and onions.


Pour in broth and wine. Simmer covered until stock is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Stir in peas, chicken, basil and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
