    Italian-style herby chicken with creamy risotto

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    Small knob of butter
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    300g Waitrose Arborio Risotto Rice
    1.3 litres low-salt chicken stock
    200g frozen peas
    52g pot Schwartz Flavour
    Shots Italian Creamy Herb Tagliatelle
    4 essential Waitrose British Chicken Breast Fillets
    100ml white wine
    2 tbsp essential Waitrose Italian Mascarpone
    Shredded spring greens, steamed, to serve


    1. Heat the butter in a small pan and cook the garlic and rice together for 1 minute. Add 1.2 litres of hot stock and cook for 20 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add the peas and cook for a further 3–4 minutes until the rice is tender and creamy.

    2. Meanwhile, stir the contents of the Flavour Shot and pour into a large frying pan. Heat for 1–2 minutes then add the chicken breasts. Gently cook the chicken for 4–5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through with no pink meat.

    3. Add the wine to the pan and bubble rapidly for 3 minutes to evaporate the alcohol. Add the remaining 100ml stock and the mascarpone, stirring to make a smooth sauce.

    4. Pile the chicken and sauce on top of the risotto, take to the table and let everyone help themselves. Serve with steamed greens.
