    Chicken risotto

    My chicken risotto recipe that I've given to DS from about 8 or 9 months (and he loves)

    Brown 1 onion & 1 crushed garlic clove, add 500g chicken mince &fry till cooked, breaking up the mince as it cooks.

    Add 150g mushrooms & 1 finely sliced zucchini, stir

    Add 1 1/2 C Arborio rice, fry stirring for a min.

    Add tin crushed/ chopped tomatoes & 2 T tomato paste

    Gradually add 2-3 C stock, stirring until rice is cooked.

    Add cheese before serving if you wish.

    I change the ingredients depending on whats in the fridge.

    That sounds great for toddlers!!! I'll have to add it to my chicken risotto recipes

    I do a chicken one that I bake in the oven.

    I mix:

    2 cloves garlic mashed crushed whatever...
    1/2 onion diced
    2 cups arborio rice
    2 cups chicken stock
    (1/2 cup dry white wine optional...I don't use it because of the kids)
    2 tbs lemon juice
    3-4 chicken breasts

    I cut the chicken breast into 2 pices and brown in a fry pan in a bit of olive oil. I add the rest of the ingredients into a pot for the oven... so whatever as long as you can cover it. Then I place the chicken on top and cover. Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.

    Often I toss some olives on top in the last 10 minutes and some broccoli chopped.

    Thanks for the recipes girls!! Lucy is also a huge fan of risotto and has been having it for quite a while. In fact, she thinks takeaway is risotto, since that's all I get at a foodcourt.

    Guaranteed to make her eat all the vegies in the world...

    Brown chicken in pan with little oil, take out.

    Add chopt onion and red capsicum - fry in oil. Add two cups risotto. Add 4-6 cups or vegie stock but one cup at a time until it evaporates, keep adding till rice is cooked.

    On the end added grated parmesan.

    Both DH and DS loved it!

    Thanks for the ideas. I have been after one that you do in the oven.

    Does anyone know if you can do it in a slow cooker??
