This is the best thing I have ever cooked. Seriously. Next time (and a million times after that) I will probably change the order to see if I can make it any faster. I will try 1) get broth simmering 2)saute onions 3) saute rice 4) start adding broth to rice 5) carmelize onions. The rest is the same. I'll write another review when I have done it. I used meat from leftover chicken legs and it was good, although I didn't get the meat off properly because I kept finding cartalidge in my food :( I would also use more like 10 cups broth because the rice was still crunchy after all the broth was absorbed. I don't like leeks so I just used onions. Fabulous. Thanks for the detailed instructions so I can cook like an expert chef even though I'm a novice. Such good food.
This is so good! I cut the recipe in half, skipped the salt, and topped it with a little parmesan cheese. Delicious. Risotto is a little work, but it is so worth it. I did use a portion of a rotisserie chicken and I also used the microwave for heating the chicken broth, and it worked fine.
I LOVE risotto! This is the best I've ever made. The carmelized onions are the key addition. I used Poached Chicken Breast for the chicken and arborio rice, and the result is creamy and delicious. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting.
This was easy, tasty and used the last of my Thanksgiving turkey instead of chopped cooked chicken. I don't follow directions too well, so I put the turkey into the onions, wine and stock reduction instead of into the rice, and it didn't matter a bit. I also steamed left-over rice from a previous meal, so I used stock for the reheating liquid. It probably would have been even better if I'd followed the directions for the rice, but absolutely nobody complained!
