Spring Chicken and Vegetable Risotto

A Panasonic rice cooker takes the hard labour out of risotto. We absolutely love coming up with new ways to use our kitchen appliances and we’ve definitely hit on a winner with this chicken and vegie risotto. Instead of standing at the stove to slowly stir one ladle full of stock into the risotto at a time, you can use a Panasonic rice cooker and turn out perfect risotto in about than thirty minutes..

  • Heat the stock in a small saucepan.
  • Set the rice cooker to cook position and place olive oil, garlic, onion, capsicum and chicken into the bowl. Fry until the onion is translucent and the chicken has browned.
  • Add the rice and cook for 2-3 minutes ensuring that the grains are coated in the oil. Add the hot stock. Stir to combine, making sure the cook button is still down.
  • Cook for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked but still has a firm bite.
