This is it. I have created my ultimate comfort food recipe: Instant Pot Dijon Chicken Risotto. This one-pot recipe brings together zesty, flavourful rosemary dijon chicken with the heavenly creaminess of buttery risotto and handfuls of healthy greens, tenderly wilted from being tossed in the risotto just before serving to create a chicken entree so delicious it is almost life-altering.
I based this Instant Pot recipe on my favourite go-to olive oil vinaigrette that I whip up almost daily for my salads.
The vinaigrette recipe combines my favourite Italian herbs, oregano, basil, rosemary, with the punch of dijon and yellow mustards, the tang of apple cider vinegar and the zest of turmeric, to create an intense flavour that I return to salad after salad. It is that perfect.
And because of the magical Instant Pot, this delicious one-pot chicken risotto recipe is also a quick and fool-proof recipe you can make any day of the week. I warn you though — it is such a comfort meal, you won’t be able to stop making it.
I just finished eating a heaping plateful and I am already doing the mealtime math to figure out when I can make it again.
Why the Instant Pot is MADE for Risotto
If it were for risotto alone, I would still sing of the wonder that is the Instant Pot.
I can’t ever imagine making risotto without it. I learned to make risotto in the Instant Pot from the HOW TO INSTANT POT cookbook by Daniel Shumski.
The Instant Pot makes cooking risotto so ridiculously easy and impossible to mess up.
I promise you — even if you have never made risotto before, with an Instant Pot, you will kill it! I promise. [Read More…]
