Chicken-Mushroom Risotto

I found this recipe in the November 2014 issue of Good Housekeeping. My sweet sister-in-law always buys me a magazine to leave in the guest room when I go visit her. What a great idea! These were recipes to use with left-over turkey, but I used a baked chicken from the grocery store.

Printable VersionIngredients:
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
4 T. olive oil (divided use)
12 oz. mixed mushrooms, such as cremini, button, oyster, and shitake, thinly sliced
2 cups shredded chicken
1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine (I used all chicken broth)
2 T. butter
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat broth on low heat. In a deep 12" skillet, heat 2 T oil on medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and pinch of salt. Cook 4-5 minutes or until softened, stirring twice. Add chicken; stir 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.
2. In same skillet, heat remaining oil on medium heat. Add shallot, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook 2 minutes, stirring. Add rice; cook 1 minute, stirring. Add wine or broth, cook 2 minutes or until mostly absorbed, stirring.
3. Stir in hot broth, 2 ladles full at a time, waiting until mostly absorbed before add next 2 ladles full. Stir frequently. Cook 22-30 minutes or until rice is just tender, stirring and adding broth.
4. Add butter and turkey mixture to rice. Cook 2 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
