Baked Risotto meets Southern Fried Chicken

Baked Risotto is so easy and versatile.  Mary recently shared the recipe for Baked Risotto on her beautiful blog Once Upon a Plate .  I made a version of it last week using prawns

Tonight’s version was made with  shallots and garlic along with the addition of sauted Crimini mushrooms and seasoned with fresh sage,butter and Parmesan.

The risotto  was good enough to serve as a main course by itself.  But I had some chicken legs to cook so I made Southern Fried Chicken.

The chicken was very simple.  Just rub the chicken with garlic. TIP:  Grate garlic on a microplane to make a paste.  Dip in seasoned flour,  then into  beaten egg,  back into the flour and then fry.

  1. The risotto looks delicious. I am a big fan of the baked risotto, as you know! And fried chicken – haven't had that in a long time. Yours looks perfectly crispy!!

    I love the changes you made to the risotto; I can see how versatile it can be. Looks so good. I love rice so this would be a delicious way to prepare it. I've been reluctant to try it the \”real\” way because of the time involved. The crust on your chicken is tempting. I'd be happy with just that!
