  • With a kitchen knife dice the chicken breast, and sprinkle with flour, salt, and pepper.
  • Next, fry the diced chicken in butter until they're lightly brown. Set aside.
  • In another saucepan, cook the onion in oil and butter.
  • Next, add the rice, stir gradually and saute for a couple of minutes.
  • Add a ladle of hot broth until it evaporates or most of it is absorbed by the rice.
  • After that, add the diced chicken breast to the rice, and simmer for about 4 minutes to let the chicken and rice absorb the flavor.
  • Add the white wine and let it simmer in medium heat until most of the wine has evaporated.
  • Add the rest of the broth one cup at a time, until the rice becomes soft and is cooked.
  • Stir in the saffron and combine well with the rice and diced chicken. Then, add the salt and pepper to taste.
  • When you're done cooking, add the grated Parmesan cheese and a dollop of butter.
  • Stir and serve immediately.


Use a rice cooker if you are in a hurry!
