I cook every day for my family and in my restaurant, but I also have this problem: I don’t know what to cook… This happens because I know so many recipes and I don’t know what to choose. Well, yesterday I remembered this great recipe for Risotto with chicken meat, spinach, and mushrooms, an incontestable delicacy!

About the Risotto with Chicken meat, Mushrooms, and Spinach Recipe

I thought to show you one of the best risotto recipes, one I have prepared also in my restaurant and, of course, at home. Not any risotto is a delicacy, that’s because the ingredients and the preparing methods vary from one cook to another. There is no such thing as bad risotto, only bad recipes. Therefore, I want to share with you my recipe for risotto, the recipe with which I won many competitions for this dish. Besides chicken meat, mushrooms and spinach, I also use white wine (dry), vegetable stock, pine nuts (the best option), long grain rice and other secondary ingredients. The taste is divine due to mixed flavors and of course, due to pine nuts. If you want to delight your family with a great dish, show them your cooking skills following this recipe.



What goes well with Risotto with Chicken meat and Pine Nuts?

Besides the fact you can eat it simply, you can add color to your table with prepared salad. To complete the risotto with chicken meat, serve with seasonal vegetables or your favorite salad. I also recommend choosing at least 3-4 different sorts of vegetables and use different colored varieties. You can search my salad section for inspiration and choose from there what kind of salad is best for you.


Tips for selecting in-season vegetables

Depending on the season you decide to make the risotto with chicken meat, you can choose the best vegetables. As a secret of mine, I prepare this risotto at home only when I find the right ingredients for my Greek Salad recipe. Search the vegetables from local farmers to reduce your shopping budget and support them. But let’s see what are the best in-season veggies (generally):


  • Spring: Asian vegetables, Asparagus, Beetroot, Broad beans, Coriander, Kale, Lemongrass, Peas, Rhubarb, Rosemary, Salad greens, Thyme, Tomatoes, Zucchini.
  • Summer: Basil, Carrots, Cucumbers, Mint, Mushrooms, Sweet corn, Tumeric, Radish.
  • Autumn: Baby Cos, Capsicums, Chard, Chestnuts, Eggplants, Galangal root, Garlic, Ginger, Potatoes, Pumpkin, Salad greens, Silverbeet, Squash, Sweet potato, Walnuts.
  • Winter: Artichoke, Beans, Broccoli, Broccolini Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Fennel, Heirloom tomatoes, Leeks, Lemons, Limes, Macadamias, Onions, Parsley, Bay leaf, Parsnips, Turnips, Zucchini.


Well, you might find everything in the supermarket but is healthier to buy seasonal veggies directly from farmers (mile 0).



Can I make this recipe for Risotto with poultry a Gluten-free meal?

Of course, you can. Many foods are naturally gluten-free and include fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, nuts and legumes, milk, rice, and corn. if you are in search of a gluten-free recipe for your diet, change the vegetable stock into one with gluten-free stock. The rest of the ingredients are ok, but double-check on the label or ask the local farmers (in case you’ll buy veggies from them). Therefore, this recipe for risotto can be easily added to a gluten-free diet.



Risotto’s Health Benefits

What can go wrong with so many healthy ingredients, most of them being veggies… For my recipe, no matter where it is prepared (restaurant or home kitchen) there are many nutritive benefits. Beginning with the chicken breasts who are known also for weight-loss, the freshness of spinach and mushrooms along with their vitamins and minerals (don’t forget about how many antioxidants have), the rice who also adds a bonus to your weight-loss diet, and the other herbs and nuts who bring the best nutrients to our body. Simply put, the chicken risotto is great, healthy and can be added to weight-loss diets!
