Cindy Lynn's Tomato-Chicken Risotto

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Cindy Lynn

This is my modified version of a recipe from my Rival's Crockpot Cooking cookbook. It is quick and easy to slap together and tastes very much like Spanish Rice with chicken rather than burger. It was a major hit with everyone in my family recently. I hope you enjoy it too!

What an easy way to cook a risotto. Just delicious. Easy to prepare and all the ingredients were prepare the night before and just thrown n the crockpot before we left home. This isn't exaclty like the labour intense stove top risotto but it sure is very good. We have a salad with this and bread. I just love recipes like this that save time and money when you have been out all day or at work and are dog tired when you get home. BTW, the smell in the house was so YUM when we arrived home. A beauty Cindy. :-) Thank you.
