The story is a little backwards of how I came to make this chicken risotto. It started with this OXO 3-quart covered saucepan I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond on clearance.

I was SO excited to find it because I only have one sauce pan and it’s small, so I can’t cook any one pan recipes. My life just hasn’t been complete, I tell you!

I purchased it immediately and my first order of business was to try a recipe in it. That night. And that is how this one pan veggie chicken risotto recipe came to be!

One criteria for this one pot recipe, besides the one pot thing, was that it be easy and delicious. I knew I wanted to use a protein (hence the chicken), and then have some veggies and rice as well.

I also knew I wanted it to be filling, and this chicken risotto recipe fits the bill. It’s good for families, and for kids who don’t exactly like their veggies (they won’t even know!).

You can also substitute the white rice for brown if you are so inclined. I’ll leave that up to you. Here’s how it’s done!
