I love to cook new dishes and challenge myself. Risotto seems to be the new buzz word on every television cooking program. Many an aspiring chef has met their demise as the hands of risotto. So today, I will be creating risotto for the first time with the new Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock #NewKnorrStock.
I usually make my own stock, but this tiny package of Knorr Chicken Stock from Walmart holds a new time-saving way to have a great tasting stock in seconds. That’s a good thing. It is “made with carefully selected ingredients and simmered to perfection —perfect for broth and soups; rice, mashed potatoes and pasta; roast chicken; and sauces and gravies.” It is Low Fat and Cholesterol Free with no added MSG.

14 ounces asparagus
1 tub Knorr Homestyle Stock – Chicken ( Knorr Walmart )

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1-1/2 cups arborio rice
1/4 cup dry white wine
1-1/2 to 3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Shedd’s Spread Country Crock® Spreadable Butter With Canola Oil

Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently and gradually stirring in Stock, until liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes. If necessary, stir in additional hot water, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender.
