Mushroom and Chicken Risotto
If you’re using canned chicken broth to make risotto, be sure it’s low-sodium. The broth reduces at the same time that it’s cooking into the rice, and regular canned broth would become much too salty.

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound mushrooms, cut into thin slices
2/3 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 2) cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
5 1/2 cups canned low sodium chicken broth, more if needed
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped




In a large pot, heat the butter over moderate heat. Add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Cook until the chicken is just done, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the mixture from the pan. In a medium saucepan, bring the broth to a simmer.

In the large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and stir until it begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes.

Add the wine and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt to the rice. Cook, stirring frequently, until all of the wine has been absorbed. Add about 1/2 cup of the simmering broth and cook, stirring frequently, until it has been absorbed. The rice and broth should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed. Continue cooking the rice, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb it before adding the next 1/2 cup. Cook the rice in this way until tender, 25 to 30 minutes in all. The broth that hasn’t been absorbed should be thickened by the starch from the rice. You may not need to use all the liquid, or you may need more broth or some water.

Stir in the chicken and mushrooms, the Parmesan, and the parsley and heat through. Serve the risotto with additional Parmesan.


Wine Recommendation: The mushrooms and Parmesan in this dish will go beautifully with one of the lighter red Burgundies, which have fruitiness, earthiness, and firm acidity.

Traditional Szechuan dishes are often quite spicy, but we’ve given this recipe only a slight dose of heat. If your taste runs to the incendiary, make yours hotter by adding more red-pepper flakes.
