  Regular rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sliced celery 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Frozen green peas 10 Ounce (1 Package)
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Diced cooked chicken 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon

  Processed american cheese slice 4
  Paprika 1 Teaspoon

1. Combine rice, celery, peas, 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a medium-size saucepan; bring to boiling; cover; simmer 20 minutes, or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
2. Melt butter or margarine in a small saucepan; saute chicken 1 minute; stir in flour, pepper and remaining 1 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring constantly, just until bubbly. Stir in milk and the 1 1/3 cups water; continue cooking and stirring until sauce thickens and bubbles 3 minutes.

4. Bake in hot oven (400°) for 15 minutes, or until the cheese melts and mixture is bubbly-hot. Sprinkle the surface of the risotto lightly with paprika.
