Over the holidays, we had dinner at a restaurant with my family where I enjoyed a big bowl of risotto with roasted chicken and chunks of sweet potatoes. Be still my heart…I had to make a version when I came home.
Now…I made my version a weeknight version (a.k.a. simplified)…because I bought a rotisserie chicken from my grocery store and used that instead of roasting up my own bird. Ea-sy! I’m telling you, this looks fancy but can be on your dinner table in 30 minutes! Plus, it’s so yummy too!
2 shallots, chopped (or one red onion)
1 cup Arborio rice
about 1 cup of frozen peas
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and Salt and Pepper, of course!
Wow! This risotto is fancy enough to entertain with but easy enough to serve on a random Tuesday night. Your family will love it!
