This was very good, but certainly takes longer than 45 minutes! Make sure you use a good balsamic to really maximize the flavor. The chicken needs to be seasoned or it will be very bland against the rice. We sauteed small cubes with some salt, pepper, garlic powder, and thyme and that went very well with the other flavors already in the dish. Rice definitely takes longer than 20 minutes to absorb- plan on a good 45 for a real slow-cooked risotto. We also added a couple of cloves of pressed garlic to the onion mixture and chopped the onions very small so as not to have too much crunch in the texture of the rice, but that's just a matter of preference. Overall, nice flavors- just takes a while!
