Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Bacon medallions, raw

8 rasher(s), smoked

Shallots

2 medium

Garlic

2 clove(s)

Arborio rice, dry

300 g

Chicken stock cube(s)

1 cube(s)

Parmesan Cheese

3 tablespoons, grated

Parsley, fresh

2 tablespoons

Chicken breast, skinless, grilled

2 individual, medium

Instructions

  1. Mist a large nonstick pan with cooking spray and put over a medium heat. Add the bacon and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring, until golden, then transfer to a plate. Mist the pan with additional cooking spray and cook the shallots for 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 1 minute.
  2. Stir in the rice and cook for 2 minutes, then add 1 litre hot chicken stock a ladleful at a time, adding a final ladleful after all the liquid has been absorbed. This should take about 25-30 minutes.
  3. Stir in most of the Parmesan and parsley, along with the bacon and chicken. Season to taste and serve with the remaining Parmesan and parsley scattered over.
