fairly easy and cheap but AMAZING!!

  • Cooked chicken
  • 1 Onion
  • Couple rashers of bacon bacon
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Tinned Tomato
  • tomato puree
  • Chicken stock
  • chili powder( optional for a bit of a kick)
  • long grain rice (the dried stuff)
  • Serves 4


1.(prep)Chop onion finely

2.(prep) chop pepper into medium square(-ish) sized pieced.. aviodig the pith.(white bit)

3.(prep) cut bacon intomedium sized square pieces.

4. (prep) chicken into cube-like pieces.

5. fry onions and bacon in oil

(add the optional chilli power if desired)

6. after a couple of mins add chicken and pepper

7. cook for about 5 mins or untill it seems cooked.

8. add tinned tomatoes and about a table spoon of puree.

9. stir for a couple mins.

10. Add stock cube to a jug and add 2 mug fulls of boiling water .. stir untill cube is disolved, and add to risotto.

11. add 2 cups of long grain rice (always add an equal amount of rice to the liquid added). stir.

12. cover and leave to simmer on a low heat (or put in slow cooker) for a couple of hours.

13. the rice cooks and expands in the liquid .. will be softer the longer you leave it.

It's fine to eat alone , or with french bread/ garlic bread.

Also it's really nice to eat cold... leftovers!!!

    The bacon bacon really makes it. Xd

    did you mean risotto rice? Because that makes more sense. Nice recipe though.
