How To Make Chicken Rice Risotto At Home

Updated on March 3, 2018

A few weeks ago I decided to try making some chicken rice risotto for dinner. I had never tried to make this meal before but was always interested to see how it tasted. After doing a little research on how it was made I decided to create a version of my own using basic ingredients that you probably already have at home in your kitchen or pantry. It turned out very delicious so I thought I would share my recipe here.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 1-2


  • 1 cup risotto rice
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • vegetables, optional
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • Cheese, grated


  1. The first thing you want to do is put your chicken stock in the pot and bring it to a boil. You can use chicken stock or you can use chicken stock powder and water. I personally use 1 teaspoon of chicken stock powder for each cup of water. I usually add 4 cups of water in total.
  2. Now you want to start to cook your risotto rice in another pan. Add a little oil and then add your rice to the pan and cook it for a couple of minutes until it starts to brown a little.
  3. Now you want to chop an onion Finely and add it to your rice and continue to cook it.
  4. The next step is to cut your chicken breast into small pieces and add it to your pan.You want your chicken to brown a little but it does not have to be cooked completely to move onto the next step as it will cook throughout the process of cooking your rice.
  5. Now it is time to start adding your chicken stock to the pan in which your rice, chicken and onion has been cooking. You want to add a little bit of stock at a time. I usually add between half a cup to 1 cup at a time. Wait until the water has disappeared and then add more.Keep doing this until you have used up all of the stock. Now try the rice to make sure that it is nice and soft. If not add a little more water until the rice is cooked well.This is also a good time to add any vegetables that you wanted to add. I like to add chopped carrots, peas and sometimes beans.
  6. The final step is to add 1 Tablespoon of butter and some grated cheese. The amount of cheese you want to add depends on how much you like cheese. You can take the rice off the heat as it will still be hot enough to melt the cheese and butter. Give it a nice mix so that it is combined well and it is ready to eat.

I definitely recommend that you give this recipe a try. It is very rich in flavor and is a recipe I will definitely be making a lot more in the future. Below I also have a video on how to make this recipe. Be sure to check it out.
