Ingredients

Makes
4 main course servings
  • 1 1/2 ounces Fond de Poulet Gold® dissolved in 4 cups hot water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

Methods/steps

  1. Bring the diluted Fond de Poulet Gold® just to a simmer in a small saucepan (do not boil). Keep it warm over low heat.
  2. Warm the olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion to the pan and sauté until soft and translucent, 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook one minute more. Add the rice and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the wine, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed. Add 1/2 cup of the hot stock and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed. Add the remaining stock, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until each portion of stock is absorbed before adding the next. Stir in the spinach with the last 1/2 cup of stock.
  4. Stir in the chicken and the goat cheese, then season the risotto to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately sprinkled with the toasted almonds.
