Rice with Chicken and Mushroom


generous 5½ cups chicken stock
2 oz butter
1 onion, chopped
9 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts, diced
generous 1-5/8 cups risotto rice
1 tsp ground turmeric
2/3 cup white wine
2¾ oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
scant 1/3 cup cashews, halved
salt and pepper


wild arugula
fresh Parmesan cheese shavings
fresh basil leaves


  1. Bring the stock to a boil in a pan, then reduce the heat and keep simmering gently over low heat while you are cooking the risotto.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the chicken and cook, stirring frequently, for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce the heat, add the rice, and mix to coat in butter Cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes, or until the grains are translucent.
  4. Stir in the turmeric, then add the wine. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute until reduced.
  5. Gradually add the hot stock, a ladleful at a time. Stir constantly and add more liquid as the rice absorbs each addition. Increase the heat to medium so that the liquid bubbles. Cook for 20 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is creamy.
  6. About 3 minutes before the end of the cooking time, stir in the mushrooms and cashews. Season to taste.
  7. Arrange the arugula leaves on 4 individual serving plates. Remove the risotto from the heat and spoon it over the arugula. Sprinkle over the Parmesan shavings and basil leaves and serve.

Makes 4 servings.
