Instructions

Simmer broth and prep
1
  • Combine 4 cups (5 3/4 cups) water, broth concentrates and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) salt in a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to low, still covered.
  • While broth comes to a boil, peel, then cut half the onion (whole onion for 4 ppl) into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Sauté onions
2
  • Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. 
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then swirl until melted. 
  • Add onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 2-3 min. 
Start risotto
3
  • Add garlic and rice to the pan with onions. Season with half the garlic salt. 
  • Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Reduce heat to medium.
  • Add 1 cup broth to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until broth is almost completely absorbed. 
  • Repeat, adding 1 cup broth at a time, until texture is creamy and rice is tender, 28-33 min. (TIP: The consistency should be like oatmeal!) 
  • Add peas halfway through. 
Cook chicken
4
  • Meanwhile, heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. 
  • While the pan heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with pepper, half the Italian Seasoning (use all for 4 ppl) and remaining garlic salt. 
  • When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then chicken. Cook until golden, 1-2 min per side. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook in 2 batches if needed.) 
  • Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) Parmesan over top. 
  • Roast in the middle of the oven until chicken is cooked through, 12-14 min.** 
Finish risotto
5
  • When the last addition of broth is almost completely absorbed, roughly chop spinach.
  • Add spinach, remaining Parmesan, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and any chicken juices from the baking sheet to the pan with risotto.
  • Cook, stirring often, until spinach wilts and cheese melts, 2-3 min. (TIP: Add 1/4 cup water if risotto is too thick!)
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Finish and serve
6
  • Thinly slice herb chicken. 
  • Divide pea risotto between plates. Arrange chicken over top.
