Chicken Risotto...using up what you have

Sorry I've been away again, but the truth is I'm really not feeling the interest in my blog anymore. My blog is a hobby and life has been getting in the way. Thank you to those of you that take the time to comment, I really appreciate it.

I am currently cooking tea and thought I would share the recipe...

I chopped up a couple of chicken breasts and cooked those with some spring onions, red and yellow peppers in a little olive oil. Then I dissolved two chicken oxos in a pint of boiling water and added to the pan. I left this to simmer until the chicken pieces were cooked through. 

Meanwhile I cooked two boil-in-the-bag type rice separately and then stirred this through the chicken pan. A couple of dashes of soy sauce and a flick of parsley before serving.

Very simple but using up the bits I had in the fridge. 

I will be back, but my blog will be going in a different direction. I am thrifty but I do this naturally now and I don't find it a challenge (maybe I need to change my blog name). What I am doing is discovering my creative side and concentrating on doing more of what makes me happy. My other blog was set up for that purpose so I will be developing that now. This blog I want mainly as a food blog...nothing too fancy...just lovely homemade food. My baking will go on the other blog along with my knitting and sewing. 

I hope you all understand that I need to do this to move forward. I also hope you will love my new style! 

Thanks for reading,

Mandy xxx
