2 cups arborio rice
3 cups water
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp saffron (recipe calls for 20 threads)

Recipe Directions for Risotto con Pollo

  1. Heat the oil in a medium sized non-stock skillet over medium heat. Add the pumpkin seeds and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to turn brown. Add the garlic and cook for about one minute.

  2. Add the diced onion and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes. Add the arborio and stir it into the onions for about a minute.

  3. Add the water, paprika, saffron, cumin, salt and pepper. Cook over low-medium heat. Stir only occasionally to blend the spices.

  4. As the rice nears being done place a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Spray lightly with oil and add the diced yellow and red pepper. Cook for one minute and add the tomatoes. Cook for one minute and add the chicken strips. Cook for about 3 - 5 minutes stirring frequently until the chicken strips are cooked through.

  5. Add the peas, goat cheese and cilantro to the rice and stir so that the goat cheese melts.

  6. Add the chicken and vegetables to the risotto and stir until blended. Serve.
