About this recipe:It still amazes me how creamy and filling a risotto is when it has no creamy ingredients in it whatsoever! Risottos are so much easier to make than I assumed as well; this dish will definitely impress!

Heat the olive oil and butter in large pan over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 7 minutes. Stir in the bacon and leeks, cooking until the leeks soften and the bacon starts to crisp, 7 to 10 minutes.
Add the risotto rice to the pan; cook and stir until the rice becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, dissolve the chicken stock cube in the boiling water. Pour the chicken stock into the rice. Cover and simmer for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the water is absorbed and the rice if soft to bite (you'll have to try some to know).
I've made this a few times and it's delicious. Usually when I decide to make it I haven't got a leek so I use an onion instead -and it's just as good. A simple easy dish which is quick to make, creamy , full of taste and filling. - 10 Sep 2015
