Chicken, Bacon and Mushroom Risotto

This has got to be one of my favourite meals! It is slightly time consuming but it is so easy and amazingly tasty! Little man was not a fan the 1st time he tried it but since then he’s had it a few more times, he’s just put off by the mushrooms! As toddler’s are.

Ingredients

  • Small pack of diced chicken
  • 150g of risotto rice
  • 2 rashers of smoked bacon, cubed
  • 1 diced onion
  • 100g of mushrooms, sliced
  • Handful of frozen peas
  • 1.5 tsp of Very Lazy Garlic
  • 1/2 a litre of vegetable stock and 1/2 a litre of chicken stock mixed together
  • 20g of grated strong cheddar cheese

Method

Fry off the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes until softened. Add the chicken and bacon and cook till browned then add the mushrooms and rice. Cook for a couple of minutes then add about a third of the stock and add the peas. Cook on a medium heat and each time the liquid starts to disappear, add another ladle or 2 and stir. This does take a while but trust me it’ll be worth it. Keep going till you are out of stock, the rice should have absorbed it and you should have a creamy consistency. Add the cheese and stir it in well, serve and enjoy.
