Autumn’s here and although the weather may still be warm, it’ll soon change to cooler temperatures. So, we’ve found a satisfying meal to serve up at the dinner table when friends and family come over.

Taken from the Woolworths website this delectable risotto will make an impression on the harshest of foodies. Super quick and easy to make in only 50 mins (including prep time), you’ll probably spend more time mulling over which wine to pair the dish with.


The Recipe – Serves 4


400g cup mushrooms

2 chicken breast fillets

1/4 cup olive oil

1 brown onion, diced

2 rashers bacon, diced

2 cups arborio rice

1.25L chicken stock

11/2 cups chopped kale leaves

1/2 cup basil pesto

2 tbs lemon juice



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°c. Line a roasting pan with baking paper. Arrange mushrooms and chicken in the pan and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tbs oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat. Cook the onion and bacon for 4 minutes or until onion softens.
  3. Stir in rice and stock. Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid. Cook for 30 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  4. Meanwhile, drizzle the mushrooms and chicken with remaining oil and season. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, while the risotto is cooking. Rest the chicken for 5 minutes, then slice.
  5. Meanwhile, pulse kale with pesto and lemon juice to a paste in a food processor.
  6. Top risotto with mushrooms and sliced chicken. Dollop with kale pesto to serve.
