Oven Baked Chicken, Pea & Spinach Risotto

Oven Baked Chicken, Pea and Spinach Risotto

I've got another super easy chicken recipe to share with you today. Utilising the trusty Sunday leftovers, this creamy risotto is one of my 'bung it in the oven' varieties. No stirring means you have time to get on with other things - at the moment this means mopping my muddy floors! I'm sure the weather will get better once the kids go back to School.

The kids aren't that keen on spinach so I only added a small handful - it would quite happily take a lot more. I also added a couple of bacon rashers too as I had them in the fridge, but it would be fine without.

Have a good week - I can't believe it's the last full week of the holidays for us!

OVEN BAKED CHICKEN, PEA AND SPINACH RISOTTO

| Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 20 Minutes | Total Time: 30 Minutes |


Ingredients:

  •  25g Butter
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, chopped
  • 2 Bacon rashers, chopped
  • 300g Risotto rice
  • Glass of white wine
  • 700ml Chicken Stock
  • 100g Frozen Peas
  • Handful of baby Spinach
  • Leftover Cooked Chicken - however much you've got
  • Grated Parmesan to serve

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 200c (180 fan).
  • Step 2: In a large oven proof casserole, melt the butter then gently fry the onion, garlic and bacon for 5 minutes. Add in the risotto rice, stir to coat in buttery juices then add the wine. Cook off the wine for a couple of minutes. Add the chicken stock, bring to the boil then put a lid on the casserole and place into the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Step 3: After 15 minutes add in the peas, spinach and chicken - give it a good stir and return to the oven for the final 5 minutes of cooking (you can add a little boiling water if it's looking a bit dry).
  • Step 4: Serve with lots of grated Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
