Mushroom Asparagus Risotto With Crisped Chicken

Recipe by Leslie
READY IN: 55mins




  • Heat broth in a small saucepan, or in microwave, until just boiling. Keep hot over low heat.
  • Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. When hot, add chopped onion; stir 3 to 5 minutes or until transparent. Then add rice all at once; stir 2 to 3 minutes or until coated and edges are becoming transparent. Add wine; stir until absorbed.
  • Continue to slowly add 1/2 cup hot broth at a time; stir frequently with a wooden spoon until each is absorbed. This takes about 25 minutes. The rice ultimately is creamy and tender to the bite. Taste; add salt as needed.
  • Add mushrooms and asparagus. Cover, turn heat to low and heat risotto for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until asparagus is cooked to your liking. Stir in Parmesan.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Add shredded chicken; sauté 5 to 7 minutes or until browned and crispy in spots.
  • Heap risotto into warmed shallow soup bowl or deep plates. Add a stack of chicken in centre of risotto; sprinkle parsley over chicken. Serve with additional grated cheese.
