Chicken and Rice-Risotto Style

MOnday Pictures, Images and PhotosGood Monday morning!

This weekend I pulled out the cast iron Dutch Oven and made me a pot of Chicken and Rice-Risotto Style.  I served it over Mexican Cornbread and added some Eastern Shore Mustard dipping sauce with chipotle and jalapeno for the added KICK!  To add a sweeter taste use Honey mustard sauce.

Olive Oil
Yellow Onion
1/2 cup White Cooking Wine
Water to cover chicken
2 cups Rice
1/4 cup Evaporated Milk

Remove chicken from bones.

When rice is cooked, around 20 minutes, add chicken and reduce heat to very low, simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

Serve over a square of cornbread, lay out some mustard sauce and ENJOY!
