Ingredients

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 cup arborio rice
  • 1 1/2 cup short grain rice
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup shredded squash
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 8 canned tomatoes chopped

Method

Slice chicken crosswise into thin strips. In large heavy saucepan, heat 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken for 5 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Transfer to plate.

Add remaining oil to pan; cook onions, garlic and thyme over medium heat, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in rice to coat.

Stir in 3-1/2 cups (875 mL) of the stock and vinegar; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in squash; cook for 15 minutes or until rice is tender.

Stir in chicken strips, remaining stock, 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the cheese, eggs and tomatoes. Pour into greased 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish; sprinkle with remaining cbeese. Bake in 35C°F (180°C) oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until bubbling. Broil for 2 minutes or until golden.
