I have been asked for this recipe of other MFP users. Its a really simple meal but very tasty.
( Serves 4. Approx 850 calories on my meal per person, but will differ if you change the amounts )
4 x chicken breasts
5 x Unsmoked Rindless Back Bacon rashers
1 x Large white onion
150g closed cup mushrooms
2 x Oxo vegetable stock cubes ( makes min 700 ml stock. Adjust if required. We near enough doubled it to stop the risotto drying out during cooking )
300g Arborio Rice
2 cups ( 150g ) frozen garden peas
A small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons of garlic. ( we used lazy garlic )
1 large french bread stick ( divided by 4 people )

Its really easy to make. Cook the onions, add the chicken breasts and drizzle the extra virgin olive oil. Remove the rind from the bacon the dice the bacon and add to pan, Dice or slice the mushrooms and add, Add the Arborio rice, then add the stock, garlic and peas. Cook on a medium heat. Once it starts to bubble, reduce the heat to simmer.
Slice the bread and serve with the meal.
ENJOY!
