A note about serious food allergies

This meal has creamy and rich all over it: a richly decadent lemon garlic herb butter adorns the seasoned chicken with aplomb. The pea risotto, quicker and less of an arm workout than normal, is all about the creaminess, and the deliciousness. And have we mentioned it's cheesy, too?
