Chicken & Roasted Garlic Risotto

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

This is a cheater recipe.  This recipe caught my eye on the Campbell's soup website because it uses instant rice to make risotto.  Risotto sounds fancy, but it is basically just creamy rice.  I love risotto, except it takes a while to make.  It isn't really possible for me to make it during the week.  I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out, but it was really good!  It was creamy and flavorful just like a traditional risotto.  The best part of the whole meal?  It only took about 30 minutes from start to finish.  These are my favorite kind of weeknight meals!  I would definitely make this again.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)

Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Stir the soups and water in the skillet and heat to a boil. Stir in the rice and peas. Return the chicken to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the skillet from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  3. Love Chicken with roasted garlic wanna to try it.


  4. Easy is always good!

    I tried making risotto from scratch once last year. I like that yours is quick and easy.

  5. Pretty good. Chicken was a little bland. Overall, nice because its a one pan dish, and only took 30 mins start to finish with frozen chicken.

  6. Looks tasty but there is no garlic in the recipe... and garlic is part of the title...
