A note about serious food allergies

The description could just be a woman in horns hitting the high notes; we have the opera to thank for tetrazzini. Either the Palace Hotel in San Francisco or the Knickerbocker Hotel in New York invented this dish, but no matter the venue, it was named after opera star Luisa Tetrazzini. Here, instead of noodles, we're giving the tetrazzini a base of creamy risotto. Topped with the perfect combination of chicken, mushroom, and peas, we're giving you warming bites that are worth singing arias over.

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Pat chicken breasts dry.

  • 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium pot over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pot and stir occasionally until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

    Start the Risotto

    Return pot used to cook chicken to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add rice to hot pot and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Add 1 cup boiling chicken demi-glace-water mixture. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed.

    Finish the Risotto

    Add ½ cup boiling chicken demi-glace-water mixture to pot with rice and stir often again until nearly all water is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes. Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more "bite" or crunch, it's done. There may be water left. Remove from burner and stir in Parmesan, butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
