Remember me saying I do NOT claim to be a food blogger. My stove does not see many photo shoots. Lifestyle shots guys, my kitchen is dirty.
In a large pot heat oil and add mushrooms and chicken and cook through until cooked. Remove from pot.
Using the same pot, add butter and saute onions and garlic in butter and leftover oil mixture until translucent. Add the rice and stir until the rice turns opaque - about two minutes.
Add the wine, salt and pepper to the rice and stir frequently until the wine has been absorbed into the rice.
Add 1/2 cup of the heated chicken stock and stir frequently until absorbed. The rice and broth should bubble gently.
Continue to cook the rice, adding chicken stock 1/2 cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb it before adding the next 1/2 cup.
Cook rice this way until tender which should take about 25-30 minutes.
Just before the last batch of stock has been absorbed into the rice, add the chicken and mushroom mixture back into the pot. Stir through.
Add 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese, the parsley and the cream and stir through.
Remove from heat when all the remaining stock has been absorbed and the risotto mix is a thick creamy consistency.
Serve immediately. The remaining parmesan can be added to each serve if requested
I also HIGHLY recommend having the Barefoot Moscato with it. plastic cup optional. This is because I know nothing of wines, but I do know that the two together tasted positively wine-o-rific.
We ventured into the comments to see hilarious truths like "I groaned after every bite" & "It was delicious, the only bad part was the stirring" ... its a lot of stirring. But so worth it.
If you do make it let me know what you think!
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I am a collector of moments & a lover of all the beautiful “things” in life. These include, but are not limited to; yoga pants, iced tea, cold sheets, lipstick, sunbeams and bokeh. Feel free to mosey about and become acquainted.
