Ingredients
  

  • 2 chicken breasts from the roast chicken, chopped
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 350 g risotto rice
  • 1 glass white wine small
  • 1 l hot stock
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaf
  • 200 g frozen peas
  • 1 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan plus extra to serve

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a large pan and cook the onion and garlic for 5 mins. Stir in the rice and cook for 1 min more, until it starts to look transparent. Pour in the wine and keep stirring until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add the stock and simmer until the rice is just tender. Stir through the chicken, thyme and peas, then cook for 2 mins or until the chicken is warmed through. Add the crème fraîche and parmesan with some seasoning, then remove from the heat. Cover with a lid and leave to stand for 2 mins before serving with extra parmesan, if you like.
