Today’s Menu: Mushroom and Chicken Risotto
For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Cheerios’s Cereal and also a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside today about 86 degrees, humid, with showers later in the day. Right after Breakfast I headed up to the local Kroger to pick up a few items for tonight’s Dinner. Back home did some house cleaning. Then after Lunch headed out to go see Dad at the rehab unit. It’s been a rough day for him, having a lot of trouble breathing today. His breathing isn’t going to get any better, his lungs have about given up on him. I guess we can always hope! Back at home finished up a few things  around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Mushroom and Chicken Risotto with Baked French Bread.

 

 
I purchased a Simple Truth Rotisserie Whole Roaster Chicken while at Kroger this morning. I went ahead and pulled all the meat, one big roaster I ended up with 2 containers of Pulled Chicken. Set the Chicken aside until needed.
 
Next, I had picked up a small container of fresh Mushrooms at Kroger also. Wiped them off with a paper towel and sliced them up. Setting them aside also.
For the Risotto I used a box of Lundberg Creamy Risotto. Love using the Lundberg Risotto Products, always turns out great. To prepare it is quick and easy. In a 2 qt. saucepan, sauté the Rice in ½ Tbsp. Extra Light Olive Oil over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add 2½ cups water and contents of Seasoning Pouch. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cook uncovered for 20 minutes stirring occasionally until rice is tender. With about 8 minutes of cooking time left I added the Chicken and Mushrooms. Stirred until both were well mixed in the Risotto.
 
Topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese, and done! The Mushroom and Chicken blended with Risotto perfectly and Parmesan Cheese on anything makes it better! I baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread to go with everything. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a small can of Coke Zero to drink.

Lundberg Creamy Parmesan Risotto

Enjoy the delectable flavor of rich, aged Parmesan cheese in this elegant Italian-style risotto. We created this delicious gourmet side dish by blending quality ingredients like Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, and spices with our creamy Arborio rice. You’ll love how the individual kernels plump, creating a rich, creamy sauce while the rice grains remain separate and al dente. Preparing this tasty risotto takes about 20 minutes and requires minimal stirring. It’s an easy, convenient way to add gourmet flair to any meal.
