Wild Porcini Chicken and Mushroom Risotto


4 tsp olive oil
1 large chicken breast, diced
2 1/2 cups water stock
1 ½ tsp Tweed Real Food Porcini Salt
1 large onion, diced
250g arborio rice
250g mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper


Heat ½ of oil in a large frying pan and saute mushrooms until slightly softened. Remove from heat and set aside.

Add remaining oil and heat before adding onion, cooking until translucent. Add chicken and cook until browned. Add rice and stir until all the grains are coated with oil.

Pour in water, Porcini Salt and ¾ of mushrooms, gently folding through.
Season with pepper then cover. Simmer gently until all the liquid has been
absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Fold Parmesan through rice mixture, serve immediately and top with remaining

Tip: Finish off with a drizzle of Tweed Real Food Bourbon Maple Splash Balsamic Vinegar for extra rich flavour.
