Risotto is probably the most popular dish within the Thermomix community and it's not difficult to understand why.
The hardest part about making risotto is usually the constant stirring. That bit is completely taken care off by the Thermomix. It does all the hard work for you and makes absolutely stunning risottos.
This particular Greek chicken & spinach risotto Thermomix recipe didn't disappoint and it's now definitely in the running for my top 5 Thermomix risottos of all times.
I got the inspiration from this One pot Greek chicken risotto recipe on the Casa de Crews website.
Who says risotto can't be Greek? Sweet onions, crumbled feta cheese, flavourful herbs, such as dill and oregano make for an amazing combination.
It's also full of good stuff and gluten-free.
10 minutes prep and the rest of making this Greek chicken and spinach risotto Thermomix recipe is totally hands-free. If that doesn't make for a perfect weeknight meal, I am not sure what does!
