      A good recipe with some tweaks. I used seasoned croutons and crushed them as my breadcrumbs. I also used more garlic added the garlic about 1-2 mins before the rice so it didn't burn. The lemon in the broth seemed to make it taste a bit sour while I was tasting, so I added some sugar to balance it out. Perhaps low sodium chicken brother should be used, because I used normal broth. I would not add the chicken to the risotto after the 4th serving as instructed in the recipe, but just serve on top of risotto to give a different texture of crunch from the chicken. The chicken is delicious on it's own! The dish is very monotone with just one color so I would add vegetables to it - perhaps red bell pepper and peas.

      Great recipe! Very comforting and hearty. We ended up using close to 7 cups of broth (crazy, I know). I did use Better than Boullion, but next time will use homemade or a high quality stock because the stock really is what dominates the flavors in the recipe. I used 2 large chicken breasts which was a good amount and just right for the breading, but three would have been good if we had more people eating with us (would need to increase breading). I made sure to save all of the wonderful crispy topping that fell off of the chicken while frying it and I added it back in - try this because it adds a delightful texture contrast to the creamy risotto. We tasted the risotto at the end and felt that it was plenty rich without adding the extra butter, so we left it out to shave off a few calories. Thanks for the keeper!

      We loved this. Like other reviewers I thought the lemon juice added such flavor!
