Nothing beats pouring a glass of wine and sitting around waiting for dinner to be served. Oh the joys of eating out every night! However, we don’t all get the chance for that to happen, but this thermomix Italian chicken risoni is the most simplest dish BUT so packed with flavour!
I think this one is definitely one that the aspiring young master chefs would love to get involved with as well.
It’s also one of those great mid week bash up meals. You know the one that has you running around at the last second because someone said they didn’t want something else, or you forgot to take some meat out of the freezer, or some kid/family emergency happened?!
This recipe is also great if you have some left over grilled chicken that you want to have something to accompany the chicken with (I would add the risoni at step 5 and just reduce the cooking time).
Amazing too, served as a side dish or accompaniment to lamb!
