      I have made a very similar recipe and enjoyed it very much. I added about 1/2 cup dry white wine in place of some of the chicken stock.

      This was good. I have made and eaten risotto before, though not Milanese, and this recipe was tasty but I don't think it will become my default risotto recipe. Also, this is not a comment on this particular recipe but just a note -- I probably will use chicken broth only for risottos with vegetables and other spices in them in the future. I have seen recipes for Risotto Milenese that say beef broth is traditional, and some that say anything other than a light vegetable broth overwhelms the saffron. This was very chickeny. In the future I probably would go to one extreme or other and have it be either very rich with beef broth or very light and saffrony.
