Moist roast chicken breast gets the royal treatment with caramelised onions, balsamic vinegar and creamy risotto. You can roast your own chicken or get roast chicken from the shops. A little grated cheese such as Parmesan before serving is also a nice touch.
An overall tasty dish. The recipe calls for rotisserie chicken which I believe is VERY unnecessary given what is done to the chicken later. I cooked 2 chicken breasts on my George Foreman, (yes the Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine) and the dish turned out wonderful. I also made a few more changes: used 2 onions instead of 1, added garlic and 1/2 lb. of sliced mushrooms to the onions as they sauteed. These changes were based upon previous reviews. The cooking time may need to be adjusted as well. I found that the broth was not absorbed in the 20 minutes it suggested so I had to cook it for about 30 minutes. I plan on making this many, many times. - 06 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very good but the writer forgot a very important step, you need to have the wine and the broth at a simmer when you add it to the rice, otherwise you get sticky rice instead of creamy, smooth rice. I added 1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms and increased the chicken to 3 cups. - 05 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe is wonderful if you have the time to make the risotto. I used 5 1/2 cups of broth rather than the 7 called for and it turned out well. In addition, I added porcini mushrooms and a can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped, which made for great consistency. Excellent!!!! - 15 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
