And how much chicken for this Healthy Mint Green Chicken Risotto? :blush:


That’s a very good point that I’ve also missed! I’ve asked the Chef, so as soon as I get a reply I’ll update the list! Thanks for noticing! :smile:

The chicken quantity has been added! :slight_smile:

Are we sharing the end photos of the risotto here?? I did my best to follow along without having looked at the recipe first, and without most of the ingredients. Anyway Richard Bradshaw gave me some awful advice and that is why this is a photo of my food waste bin, which is where the risotto ended up.
