Chicken Pea and Corn Risotto

Simone Austin

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, cut and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 250g arborio risotto rice
  • 100ml white wine
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 300g chicken breast or thigh fillets cubed
  • 200g frozen or fresh peas
  • 1 can 425g corn, drained
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 scoops Ensure Vanilla powder

Method:

  1. Heat oil in pan and brown the chopped chicken until brown. Remove and set aside.
  2. Fry the onion until soft and beginning to brown, add garlic and fry for 1 minute
  3. Add the rice to the pan and stir for 40 seconds until the oil has coated the rice
  4. Pour in half the wine and allow to bubble for 30 seconds, then add the stock and bring to the boil, stirring well. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes stirring regularly until the rice is tender.
  5. Stir in the rest of the wine, add the chicken, peas and corn. Cook for another 5 minutes until rice is tender and vegetables heated through. Mix the Ensure powder with a little water in a cup to make a runny paste. Stir in the cheese and Ensure powder and a further minute. Turn off the heat. Place a lid on and sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes:

  • Risotto is a good meal you can prepare in advance. You can swap in different vegetables and add more on the side to go with it. The carbohydrate from the rice is a good energy boost for those who need it.
