From the Kitchen of Rosi & Kitty

As a mum of two little ladies, i thought i would start to share some of our edible creations including Dinner ideas, Baking successes and Snack suggestions - this has come about because the girls love to cook and i love to be crafty, and with all this creativity our brains are bursting to share with everyone!

Chicken and Pea Rissotto

Makes four portions for toddlers

1 Chicken breast, cooked (or left over cooked chicken from a roast)
Handful of peas
1 Chopped leek
Small handful of onions
Cup of Arborio rice
2 pints of Water
1 Vegetable Stock cube
(If you have stock readily available, forget the water and the cube and add 200ml of stock)
Dash of Garlic
Dash of oil
Squeeze of Lemon

Heat oil and garlic in a pan, add onions and heat till they colour. 
Add peas and leeks and heat for 2 minutes. 
Add arborio rice and heat gently for 2 minutes.
Ladle at a time, add the stock, letting the rice soak it up before adding the next ladle. 
Once all the stock is in the pan, add the chicken and heat through for 20 minutes. If rice looks like it needs more liquid at any point, add a dash of boiling water.
Add a squeeze of Lemon and stir through.

Serve warm with a sprinkling of Parmesan on the top.

Very easy and if you make a batch you can freeze portions for another night. 

Happy cooking x
