      Really quite lovely--I used frozen spinach (not by choice--what was available) and I cut the chicken into small pieces as suggested as an alternative. I think this was a mistake--I should have left the chicken whole and grilled it and then cut it up--it would have been, I think, juicier. However, the risotto was lovely--more than 2 servings, but since it was delicious, we had no complaints about there being more than enough for two. When I make this again, I will perhaps add more spice and something to make it make it even creamier. Thank you for a lovely meal!
