Make this Easy Chicken Risotto Recipe if you want a quick and easy delicious dinner recipe that takes less than 30 minutes to prep and cook!
I’m a huge fan of meal planning, how about you? Two days out of the week I like to prep all of our fruits, vegetables, and proteins. For proteins I prep chicken, hard boiled eggs, and black beans.
Sometimes we’re left with chicken if my husband has a lunch meeting. That leftover chicken doesn’t get wasted. Instead, we use it in a quick and easy dinner!
Talking about quick and easy, our daughter would eat rice every day if we let her. I’m always trying new ways to make a complete meal with rice IN it. That way, she’s not just eating rice. 😉
I found Knorr Select at BJ’s during our recent trip. We tend to go to BJ’s at least once a week since we love their bagels and sometimes to just snap stories to my nephews who also love BJ’s. 🙂 We found the Knorr Selects right on the end cap. With no artificial flavors, preservatives, and gluten free – it was a must try for our family.
Kay picked out the Knorr Selects Four Cheese Risotto, and on the back of the package there’s a recipe for Garlic Shrimp Risotto Recipe, so we gave it a try! My family loves shrimp, but breaded, so I thought this was the perfect use for our chicken breasts. Plus, as much as I love risotto, it’s not typically quick and easy, but this Easy Chicken Risotto Recipe is SUPER easy and will wow everyone!
It was pretty darn tasty and a great way to get some leafy greens on the table too. I topped it with a little more parmesan cheese as well because yum! Next time I may even add on some crumbled bacon.
In fact, hubby already requested that I make it with just bacon, so we’re going to definitely make that happen! You can make these tasty side dishes or a complete meal, they’re so versatile and save you tons of time in the kitchen.
- 3 Tbsp . olive oil , divided
- 1 lb . cooked chicken breasts , chopped
- 1 clove garlic , chopped

HEAT 1 tbsp. of the olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Season your chicken with salt and pepper, if you’d like. Add your chicken and cook for about 3-5 minutes until warmed up, or use fresh chicken and cook fully. Remove from pan and set aside.
POUR your water, milk, remaining olive oil and Knorr Selects into the same pan. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to medium and continue cooking for 7 mins.Toss in the kale and cook 3 minutes more.
STIR in your chicken and tomatoes.
