Chicken Risotto

READY IN: 7hrs 45mins
Recipe by Smilyn

This is a very good recipe for my son who is 2 years old. He isn't one for chicken, but will eat this. I put individual servings for him into the freezer so when the hubby and I eat something that we know he won't eat, I just pop this in the microwave. Very easy and satisfying.

A good slow cooker meal! Followed the recipe as-is the first time, and enjoyed it. This time, I'll add either broccoli or peas to up the veggie intake, and possibly cut the parm. down only to decrease the fat. The taste with the full amount of parm was incredible! Hopefully it won't lose too much of that by reducing the amount. Thanks for the recipe!
