RISOTTO WITH CHICKEN: SOME OTHER RECIPES

The chicken can also be used in other risotto recipes. In autumn, for example, a good idea could be to add chicken to the classic Italian squash risotto. If you prefer to have only an aftertaste of meat, you can also opt for a risotto with chicken broth. Finally, another fresh, summer proposal is that of chicken and lemon risotto, a very simple dish to prepare.
A peculiarity is that in America often the meat to be used in the preparation of the first course is roasted instead of cooked in a pan. On the web there are in fact many recipes for risotto with roast chicken (roast chicken risotto recipes).

SLOW COOKER CHICKEN RISOTTO RECIPE

Method

  1. Chop the chicken breasts into small cubes
