1 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chopped chicken and cook for 3 min on each side or until browned

2 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

While the chicken is cooking, peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Chop the chestnut mushrooms in half

3 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

Once the chicken has browned, transfer it to a plate and set aside until later

Return the pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil

Once hot, add the chopped onion and halved mushrooms and cook for 7-8 min or until softened

4 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

Strip the thyme leaves and chop them finely, discard the stems

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.4L] boiled water

5 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

Once the vegetables have softened, add the chopped garlic, thyme and arborio rice to the pan and cook for 1-2 min

Add the chicken stock a ladle at a time, stirring continuously for 15-20 min or until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked

6 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto

While the rice is cooking, grate the cheddar cheese

7 1377 - Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Thyme Risotto
