    4 servings


  • 1 carton (32 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • In a large saucepan, bring broth and water to a simmer; keep hot. In another large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter and oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook and stir 6-8 minutes or until tender. Add rice; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until rice is coated.
  • Stir in wine and lemon juice. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; cook and stir until wine mixture is absorbed. Add hot broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, cooking and stirring until broth has been absorbed after each addition, until rice is tender but firm to the bite and risotto is creamy.
  • Stir in chicken, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper and remaining butter; heat through. Serve immediately.
