Cook With Me #5 – Chicken Risotto

This is one of my favourite meals to make. It is cheap and easy and the chicken can be taken out if you’re vegetarian/tight for money. This risotto is a lazy risotto and should probably be called something like vegetable rice! But it is one of the first ever meals I cooked. I think the recipe says to use bacon, but I don’t like bacon so I changed it to chicken!

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 300g plain rice
  • 400g chicken (diced)
  • 1 onion (copped)
  • Handful mushrooms (copped)
  • 1 red pepper (copped) (I used yellow pepper here as there weren’t any red peppers in the shop)
  • 4 salad tomatoes (copped)
  • Tomato puree
  • Frozen peas
  • Oregano
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Cook the chicken in a large pan/wok with some oil.Photo 25-04-2017, 18 06 42
  2. Once it’s lightly browned add the onion, pepper and frozen peas and fry a little until the onion is soft. Set a pan of water to boil for the rice.Photo 25-04-2017, 18 19 47
