Summer Herb, Chicken, Feta & Courgette Risotto

A few weeks ago I told you about my plans to cook and try more new recipes. I have been very busy due to Xmas and have not managed to try something new every week, but I have not forgotten.

Today I have another very tasty, super easy and quick recipe to share.

Summer Herb, Chicken, Feta & Courgette Risotto

You will need:

2 tbsp olive oil

500g courgette halved and thinly sliced

2 large chicken breasts diced

350g arborio risotto rice

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1.2 litres vegetable stock

25g pack fresh basil, chopped

20g pack fresh mint, chopped

100g Greek feta, cubed

  1. Heat the oil in a wide pan and add the sliced courgette and chicken. Fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes until golden brown. Add the garlic and seasoning, then cook for further minute. Stir in the rice and cook for 1 minute until coated in oil
  2. Bring the stock to the boil and gradually add to the rice a ladleful at a time, stirring until each amount is absorbed. Continue adding until all the stock is added and the rice is creamy ( 15-20 minutes).
  3.  Off the heat stir in the herbs and cubed feta and leave to rest for a couple of minutes. Serve!
