My First Post!!! - Chicken's Risotto

Hello World!
My name is Larissa Santos also know as Lara (easy one!) and I'm the dark blue owl with glasses and a kitchen roller in my wing. You all need to know that without my glasses I (literally) can't see anything and I'm passionate about food and drinks. It is funny to pretend being a cute owl as a teenager I was used to be called like that (because of my huge glasses at my thin face!) lol
I will be posting about food, recipes, tips and advices about healthy food, wonderful (and taste!) things that you can do it in your own kitchen - without any previous experience!

I'm originally from Brazil (South America!) but I live in UK (Leicestershire, England) with my sweet (and sometimes not so sweet) husband Abner and our little princess Tchutchuca (it means 'sweetheart' in Portuguese - PS: Brazilian people speak Portuguese and not Spanish!) - she is our first daugther and, no, she is not a real kid but a 2 year old yellow Labrador! We still trying to have a real baby (actually we will be attending our Insemination processes very soon)... But this is another story - maybe later on! ;)  - do you want to know more about me...? HERE

Let's cook!!!

- To celebrate my fisrt post I will teach you a very easy recipe with Chicken - one of my favourites recipes:

Chicken's Risotto
- Rice
1 medium onion finally chopped
2 cloves of garlic finally chopped
3 tablespoons of oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1 mug of white rice (or your usual type of rice)
2 mugs of boiled water
How to Prepare:
Prepare the rice as usual - gold the onion and garlic on the oil with salt (be carefull to not burn the garlic!), add the rice, mix and then add the boiled water. Leave to cook until dry all the water. Keep.
- Chicken Sauce 
1 medium onion finally chopped
1 teaspoonf of Mango Pickle sauce (I normally use Patak's)
2 cloves of garlic finally chopped
3 teaspoons of oil
3 chicken breats (cooked in water and salt) unravelled
3 tablespoons of tomato sauce (any of your choice)
1/2 mug of boiled water
How to Prepare:
As the rice, gold the onion with the garlic, salt, the mango pickle on the oil. Put the chicken on the pan and mix well. Add the tomato sauce and the water, mix again and leave to cook for about 5 minutes.
- The Risotto's
How to Prepare:
Put the rice into a big bowl and add the chicken sauce, mising well. You can leave the risotto on the same bowl or beautifully arrange into a nice glass/porcelain dish - where you can take to oven (if you preffer) with some parmesan cheese on top - to gratinate.

It's done!
- Of course you can add anything you want: pickles, cucumber, leek, tomatoes,... It's up to your taste and imagination!

Hope you all enjoyed my post as I really enjoyed doing it for you!!!
