Ingredients

  • 30 g Bertolli with Butter and Olive Oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 300 g Arborio rice
  • 100 ml white wine
  • 1 Knorr Chicken Stock Pot (dissolved in one litre boiling water)
  • 250 g skinless chicken breast fillet, cooked and diced
  • 40 g Parmesan, grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Heat the Bertolli in a large saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook gently for 5 minutes until soft.
  2. Pour in the rice and stir to coat thoroughly until transparent.
  3. Add the wine and stir until it has evaporated. Add a ladleful of the stock to the rice, stirring constantly, until the rice has absorbed the liquid; continue adding the stock in this way.
  4. About 5 minutes from the end of cooking time add the chicken and simmer until thoroughly heated.
  5. Stir in the Parmesan, thyme, and season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Cover and leave for 2 minutes then serve sprinkled with extra Parmesan.
