Risotto

TCFRita's picture
Will it ever get warm outside? There€™s just a little chill in the air every day, it seems, and a nice way to chase away the rain or the cold is with a hearty bowl of Risotto. This dinner takes about 30 minutes to make and is full of wonderful flavors!
Ingredients
  Broccoli florets 2 , cut into bite-sized pieces
  Red pepper 1 , cut into bite-sized pieces
  Boneless, skinless chicken thighs 4 (1/2 Of A Package From Tcf)
  Olive oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Shallot/Sweet yellow onion + 1 medium clove garlic 1
  Arborio rice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  White wine 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Not Sweet)
  Broth 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Broccoli 2 , cut into bite sized pieces
  Red pepper 1 , cut into bite sized pieces
  Skinless boneless chicken thighs 4
  Egg 1
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For Dredging)
Directions

Heat 2 Tb olive oil in a large, shallow pan. Saute the shallot or onion + garlic until fragrant (do not brown). Add the rice to the pan and saut̩ over medium-high heat until the rice begins to smell nutty. Pour in the wine, turn the heat to high and stir constantly as the wine absorbs and evaporates. When the wine is well absorbed, begin adding the broth about 1 Cup at a time and stir constantly so the rice doesn۪t stick. For this part, adjust the heat so that the rice is between a rapid boil and a good simmer.

Heat another sauté pan and add 2 Tb. olive oil over medium high heat. Add the broccoli and red pepper. Cook until al dente, then remove to a bowl.

Pound out the thighs a little bit. Salt and pepper them, put them into a bowl with the beaten egg, then dredge in flour and cook in a little olive oil over medium high heat.

Test the rice. It should be soft and flavorful. When it is, remove the pan from the heat, add 1 Tb butter and stir it in to melt. Sprinkle in the Parmesan and allow that to melt into the rice, stirring well.

To serve, spoon Risotto into a bowl. Garnish with veggies and chicken. MMMMMMmmmm!

Risotto is one of the favorite recipes of mine. However, I never had chicken in my risotto...this is something new to me. Just a quick question, can any broth be used for this or you use any specific one ?
