4. Risotto with Parmesan

by Lora Brody
Enjoy this traditional Italian meal with minimal preparation.

1/4 cup olive oil
2 shallots, peeled and minced
1-1/4 cup arborio rice
1/4 cup dry white wine
3-3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
1/2 or 2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano


Heat the oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat, and sauté the shallots until they have softened. Scrape them into the insert (or bowl) of the slow cooker. If your microwave oven is large enough to hold the slow-cooker insert, place the oil and shallots in the insert, cover with the lid or a flat plate, place in the microwave and cook on high for four to five minutes.

Return the insert to the slow cooker and toss in the rice to coat it with oil. Stir in wine, broth and salt. Cover and cook on high for about two hours or until all liquid is absorbed. Just before serving, stir in the cheese. Makes four generous servings.

Variations: Add a teaspoon of the dried herb of your choice, along with the rice.

5. Roman-style Chicken

Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis

Prep Time: 20 min
Inactive Prep Time: --
Cook Time: 40 min
Level: Easy Serves: 6 servings


4 skinless chicken breast halves, with ribs
2 skinless chicken thighs, with bones
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus 1 teaspoon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
3 ounces prosciutto, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons capers
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves


Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. In a heavy, large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Keeping the same pan over medium heat, add the peppers and prosciutto and cook until the peppers have browned and the prosciutto is crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, wine, and herbs. Using a wooden spoon, scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Return the chicken to the pan, add the stock, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 to 30 minutes.

If serving immediately, add the capers and the parsley. Stir to combine and serve. If making ahead of time, transfer the chicken and sauce to a storage container, cool, and refrigerate. The next day, reheat the chicken to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in the capers and the parsley and serve.
