As the youngest in my family I blamed my brothers....they always bought it :lol:

 

Well, I got blamed, but nothing ever came of it because as I still tell them, I am the cutest and the favorite. ^_^

This isn't a super creamy, cream laden dish but it makes a nice 1 pot meal.  I think you could use more spinach if you wanted.

 

I think I have changed enough about this recipe to make it mine - changed & added some ingredients.  Changed a few other parts as well as the measurements.

 

Oven Chicken Risotto

Olive oil

1 medium onion - finely chopped

1 lb chicken breast (cut into bite sized bits)

15.5 oz or 2 ¼ cups Arborio rice

¼ cup white wine

44 oz chicken broth

3 ½ tbsp grated parmesan (I use more I’m sure.. I just stir it in until it looks good)

2 Tbsp + of fresh basil, chopped

10 oz box of frozen spinach

1 cup of shredded carrots

 

Preheat oven to 325F.

 

Cook the frozen spinach about 3 minutes in microwave. Add the carrots and cook another 3-4 minutes. Drain well.

 

Using a pan that you can cover and put in the oven - drizzle olive oil and cook onion about 2-3 minutes.

 

Add chicken to onions and cook partially just to cook the outside.

 

Add rice and cook, stirring, for a minute.

 

Add wine and stock and bring back to a boil (or not if dinner is running late). Stir.

 

Add spinach & carrots and stir well.

 

Put a lid or foil on it and put it in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes. Stir and cook another 15 minutes. Stir. May need another 5-8 minutes (mine usually does) to get most of the moisture out.

 

Take out and add the basil and the cheese. Serve.

 

 

Left-overs are good but might need a bit of water or chicken broth.

This makes a lot. For two people who eat a normal portion, you might want to make about half.

Thanks, K

 

Now, if I can find the right box with my big covered pot in the PODS container and fish it out, I would be all set...  :lol:

You know you are supposed to empty those PODs don't you? Or put them in storage?

It is in storage. That's the whole point. My house is being built, remember?. I am living in a rental. I can only bring in so much. It just landed here in FL. I have to keep most of my stuff in the POD....

For 4 months....grumble grumble.....

You are parking on the driveway or parking lot? For 4 months?

You could just put foil over the top. Or transfer it to a casserole?

You have everything you need for chicken nuggets!  I would dredge nugget sized chunks of chicken thighs (so maybe cut each thigh into 4 pieces)  in egg, and then in a mix of 3 parts rice flour/1 part corn starch, seasoned with the salt and pepper.  If you can add paprika and garlic powder it'll be extra yummy.  Bake at 375 until done (if you can bake them on a rack they will be more crisp), or you can use a little oil and fry them up in a pan.  I cook all my chicken to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. 

 

Tonight I treated myself and went to the best gluten-free restaurant in Dallas/Fort Worth, "From across the pond" in Hurst, Texas.  They have a gluten-free menu that reads like a regular menu, and they give you GLUTEN FREE GARLIC BREAD!  For free!  There are also bona-fide British people there, teehee! One of the few places you walk in and say "I'm a celiac" and you know you are good.  I had an antipasta salad, and the hubby had a hamburger.  I was really craving that salad but staring at his giant juicy hamburger had my mouth watering over it so I think we will go back later this week so I can kick the craving.  

 

Tomorrow I am making gluten-free fried spicy chicken tenders.  I put them on to marinade tonight in buttermilk/sriracha/lawrys seasoned salt.  I take them straight out of the buttermilk and dredge them in gluten-free bisquick that I have seasoned up.  Makes a really good treat :)

Flying to Venice then driving to our house in Croatia - leaving Monday and will be away 26 days. YAY! Have not been here much lately as I have been busy. Yesterday I made lovely beef stew to use up some of our carrots, potatoes, peas, shrooms, etc. Nice to have as we are having some chilly temps (in the minus range).

Have an awesome October, All!

last night i made awesome new england clam chowda - it's my own recipe :)  and i'm from jersey, so i guess it's hoboken clam chowda lolz - got some littlenecks to throw in there still in the shell and that was a nice addition.

 

tonight we are having steak on the grill  (for the Meat Man) and i'm going to attempt my first try with pillsbury pie crust ready made stuff.  making a tomato/ricotta/white (australian) sharp cheddar <the stuff is delicious - had it on spinach salad with dried cranberries and prosciutto - sooooo tasty!  the brand name is cute, too - 'old croc'  lololz and it doesn't taste like any sort of shoe at all, not crocs or alligator shoes.................

Question here :) When making Soup and using gluten-free noodles. Last night Turkey soup :) Umm I made noodles but did not add them to the soup. Putt he noodles in a bowl then added soup. I was afraid the noodles would tear up in the soup. I was not sure. SO what does everyone do when making soup with noodles? Do you add the noodles to the soup? Or leave the separate? When I put everything away I put noodles separate.

I just throw the noodles in at the end and let them cook.  We don't mind that the noodles soak up all the broth in the left-overs.  But my son and hub don't really like a lot of broth.  Some noodles seem to hold up better, so try different brands and ingredients - corn pasta seems sturdier but might not taste great in chicken noodle.

 

 

Friday night - chili

Saturday night - Experimental night - a yummy non-TexMex bean dip - black beans, fresh goat cheese, roasted poblanos...  Peanut toffee

Sunday night - Steaks and corn on the cob on the grill, salad,  Lundberg rice mix, and a warm flourless cake with vanilla ice cream.

 

Tonight - left-over chili as chili mac was requested.  I might make mine into a taco salad

have a great trip, love2!  karen - i love your experimental nights (also i want chili mac now lolz)  shadow - anxiously awaiting how you made mac & cheese with your chicken lololz  j/k :D  w8n4 - i use the tinkyada noodles and they hold up pretty well in soups/sauces - i have used some corn pastas that would disintigrate if you left them in liquid too long - like, turn to mush. 

 

hubs on the road again - finally cooked his steak last night - the pie turned out really good!!  in spite of hilarity insueingness ;)  but i made the steak rub with instant coffee in it, which was tasty but wreaked havoc on my stomach almost instantly <get it?  INSTANT coffee...........  yuk yuk

 

eating l'eftouvres and plotting wednesday menu - i told husband i was 'pantry cooking' - i have too many things in there so i'm dreaming up ways to clear them out.   dangerrrr..... :lol:
