Garden Pea & Chicken Risotto

+1 Edgell Sliced Mushrooms

Risotto is always a hit with the family and not just because there’s only one pot to wash up at the end! We've made the classic combination of chicken and pea even better by adding buttery sliced mushrooms. Shave some parmesan over the top and sprinkle with cracked pepper for a delicious finish.

Original recipe by SIMPLY GREAT MEALS | 1.7.15


  • 1 tablespoon oil
