  1. 1

    prepare ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Quarter tomatoes


  2. 2

    Cook Chicken

    "Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1"" dice. Place a large pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add diced chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken browns and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes." Transfer to a plate and reserve pan, no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Start Risotto

    " Place the large pot from cooking the chicken over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add rice and green onion bottoms to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes.Add 2 cup boiling water and chicken broth to pot with rice. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed. Add 1 cup boiling water 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. Add garlic salt, half of the parmesan, butter and cream cheese. Stir to combine, then cover and set aside."
