Chicken & Bacon Risotto Recipe Slimming World Friendly

 A creamy and delicious Slimming World friendly risotto recipe!

I love a good risotto, and once I learnt how to make one properly, there's not looking back!

With risotto, you can add in or remove as may flavours as you like. This is chicken, bacon and mushroom, but you could leave the meat out to make this vegetarian if required. 

This slimming friendly version is syn free, simple to make, and very tasty!


My Tips for the best risotto

1. Choose arborio rice. This will absorb the stock well, giving you that lovely thick, velvety texture.

2. Do not wash your rice before you use it. This removes the starch, which is actually required to help create a smooth texture. 

3. Cook your risotto on a low, simmering heat and add the stock gradually, one ladle at a time. This gives the rice time to fully absorb the liquid and flavours.

4. Don't rush! Rushing your risotto will only ruin its texture. 

5. Keep your attention fully on your risotto, and don’t let it simmer unattended. Check and stir often to prevent it from drying out or sticking to the bottom of the pan.

You will need:

2 skinless chicken breasts, diced
4 bacon medallions, diced 
1 onion finely chopped
1/2 litre of hot chicken stock (Can be made up from a cube)
135g of Arborio Rice
100g of mushrooms (I used chestnut mushrooms)
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
pinch dried thyme
salt and black pepper
Optional: 1 tablespoon fat-free fromage frais

Method:


Place the stock in a small saucepan with the thyme. Add to a low heat.

Spray a frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray. Add the chicken and bacon, and stir until the chicken is cooked through.

Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook until softened and golden. 

Add a little of the stock if needed to prevent from sticking.

Season with a pinch of black pepper.

Add the Arborio rice and mix thoroughly with the chicken, bacon, onion, garlic and mushrooms.

Add 1 ladle of stock and stir it. Stir it often, but feel free to give your arms (and the rice) a break if you need to.

As the stock reduces, add another ladle of stock, and repeat the process until all of the stock has been used and the rice is cooked through.

Stir through the fat-free fromage frais to add extra creaminess.
