Serves 6 (11pp per serve)
500g chicken thighs, sliced (15pp)
75g shortcut bacon, diced (5pp)
500g button mushrooms, sliced (0pp)
1 brown onion, finely diced (0pp)
20g minced garlic (0pp)
20g butter (4pp)
300g arborio rice (27pp)
1/2 cup dry white wine (3pp)
5 cups of hot salt reduced chicken stock (2pp)
40g parmesan cheese (5pp)
150g frozen green peas (3pp)
Heat a large non stick frypan over medium-high heat. Add onion and bacon and fry off for 1 minute. Add chicken and cook for a further 2 minutes then add mushrooms. It may seem a lot but they will reduce down. Cook down until liquid from mushrooms is reduced to nil then add in garlic and stir through.
Meanwhile melt butter in another large nonstick pot over medium-high heat. Add rice and stir to coat. Then add 2 cups of hot stock. Give a gentle stir and let reduce down. Then add wine. Give another gentle stir then reduce down. Gradually add the rest of the stock (stirring occasionally) until rice is al dente and almost all the stock is gone. Stir in parmesan cheese, chicken and mushroom mixture and frozen peas. Turn off stove. Cover with lid for a few minutes for peas to cook. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
