Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a hit at our house My husband loves risotto, so I gave this a try. I served it as a main dish with a side of asparagus and a salad. I left out the mushrooms as my family doesn't like those. I also let each person add their own cheese on top because one of my kids has a dairy allergy. He wouldn't have been able to eat this dish if I added the cheese as directed in the recipe. While my pickiest eater wasn't sure about it at first, he ended up taking a second helping. Everyone liked this one and I'll make it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wasn't very tasty This was the first recipe I made with Chicken Magic and I was not impressed. I agree with the previous reviewer it was not very tasteful and on the dry side. I will not make it again.
