Risotto with chicken and green olives

Chicken and Green Olives Risotto Recipe

What a joy to be able to taste a risotto, prepared Italian style, these Italians are the champions of risottos. This Chicken and Green Olive Risotto had little flavors that varied with each fork, in addition the meat was divinely soft (just cooked without excess it remained soft). I had chosen one of the best rice to make a Carvani risotto, seared with white wine and onions, it gave a little more flavor to this Risotto with chicken and green olives. Finally to finish talking about this dish, the first impression: beautiful sunny colors, the chicken charmed by the paprika took notes barely reddened by the flame. A few touches of green and black finish this beautiful Risotto with chicken and green olives, with its natural creaminess at the first stroke of the fork you will love.

Mas Champart Côte d’Arbo St Chinian 2015
With its beautiful ruby color and a nose of very ripe black fruits, sometimes with touches of cocoa or even mild spices or even roasted coffee. The tannins are soft but evolve very quickly with a very pleasant and full palate, I advise you to decant it at least two hours before tasting it.
