Golden Chicken Risotto Recipe

Golden Chicken Risotto Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tbsp water

1 large onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice

1 1/2 liters Chicken Stock or 4 chicken stock cubes dissolved in 6 cups water

4 chicken breasts, skin removed, finely diced

1 tsp powdered turmeric

20 almonds, blanched and halved

3 tbsp raisins

Method 1 - Preparing risotto on top of the stove :

In a large saucepan, heat the water to boiling, add the onion and cook until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the rice and one quarter of the chicken stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more stock, as necessary, to prevent sticking. Add the diced chicken breasts, turmeric, almonds and raisins. Continue simmering a further 20-25 minutes, adding remaining stock as necessary, until the rice is tender. There should be no liquid in the finished risotto.

Method 2 - Preparing risotto in a casserole :

Place all ingredients in a casserole. Cover and cook in a preheated oven for 1 hour, or until rice has absorbed the stock and is tender. Serve hot, accompanied by a green salad.

There are two ways of preparing this dish -  on top of the stove or in the oven. They are equally effective.

Serves 4 - 6
