    Annacia's Note:

    True risotto is made from arborio rice, slowly cooked with homemade chicken stock until creamy. This shortcut recipe tastes wonderful too, and is much, much easier.

      I love true risotto but sometimes you don't have the time or patience for long cooking and stirring! I made half the recipe using the "San Francisco Treat" - 6 oz package of Creamy four Cheese flavor, 4 oz chicken breast half (cooked last night) 1 c frozen baby peas, 1/2 c Mock Sour Cream and skipped the extra Parm to save on sodium (the rice contained parm, cheddar, romano and bleu). This made an easy and great tasting rice dish for lunch and count on me making this again! Thanks for posting Annacia! Made for When It's Hot Tag Game.

      Yummy lunch for DS and I!! I made this using Uncle Ben's Rice Pilaf, which is only 6 ounces, so about half the recipe. I couldn't find the garlic kind. I used a fresh chicken breast that I put a little olive oil on along with sea salt and pepper, then I grilled it and sliced it up, while the rice was cooking. We aren't big pea fans so I subbed green beans and then followed as written. DS cleared his plate, major points!!! Thanks for posting the recipe Annacia!!! Made for Went to the Market Tag!!!

      Very good! I used four cheese rice/vermicelli mix but otherwise everything was the same. I don't like peas so I was skeptical but they added a subtle crunch that is fantastic!
