Default Lemon Zest Chicken & risotto

this originally used "rice" - it's a much better dish with arborio rice morphing to a risotto...

I like it as it's one pan, simple, few ingredients, non-tricky prep.

for two
100 g arborio rice
2-3 cups good chicken stock

zest one lemon; juice lemon
(for two you only need half the lemon zest/juice - start light, add to your tastes)

chop about 1/2 cup fresh curly parsley; semi fine
reserve 1 T per person for garnish

fresh grate 2-3 T Parmesan

chicken - any cut you like; pounded or sliced to about 1/2 inch for equal cooking. amount to suit your appetite. I like this dish because I can use boneless thighs and DW can insist on breast....

ten inch fry pan
salt/pepper the chicken, brown in hot pan, remove & reserve
add a bit of stock to deglaze pan
add rice + about half the chicken stock
add half the lemon juice and lemon zest
add 1 teaspoon garlic powder

continue to add stock as the risotto develops

simmer about 10 minutes
check and add stock as needed for a nice loose risotto
then add chicken back in to finish cooking.
takes another 10 minutes or so.

plate, garnish with parsley & parm.
goes well with lightly steamed fresh broccoli.

pix next time....
