This is the fastest risotto dinner you'll ever make! Chicken & Roasted Garlic Risotto is not only quick to make, but it's a balanced meal, with sauteed chicken and a creamy rice and veggie mixture all cooking in one skillet. It's one of those recipes that seems too good to be true, but the condensed cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup transforms instant rice into a creamy, roasted garlic-seasoned risotto with little to no effort. A few other on-hand ingredients and Chicken & Roasted Garlic Risotto is on the table in 30 minutes.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet and butter are hot before adding the chicken) or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
Stir the soups and water in the skillet and heat to a boil. Stir in the rice and vegetables. Return the chicken to the skillet (and if the browned chicken released any juices, add those too). Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is done. Remove the skillet from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Season to taste before serving.
EXCELLENT Made this for dinner and it was easy, used risotto rice and substituted chicken broth for the water. This is a keeper.
This was quick and easy and I used what was on hand. Great for a weeknight when you are too busy to think of something better. This is the best and will use again.
We liked this dish .We will have it again!
This dish was very good .I used minute rice ,,and one can of chicken broth for the water.
Chicken & Roasted Garlic Risotto
I have no idea why there were 2 cups of water in this recipe. It made it way too soupy. I used Uncle Ben's Brown rice (boil in a bag) uncooked, so not sure if Minute Rice would have absorbed more of the liquid. But, I would highly recommend using only 1 can of liquid (either water, milk or a mix of both). It also didn't have much flavor - and I even cooked the chicken in 2 tsps of minced garlic (the equivalent of 4 cloves).
Gross. Does not taste natural at all.
The only thing good was the chicken.
Will definitely not do this again.
