One pot balanced meals are my favourite as their easy to grab and eat on the go and this Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Risotto is no exception.
The sun-dried tomatoes really add a depth of flavour that normal tomatoes just can’t give and the Parmesan cheese finishes it off with a fragrant smell and nice creamy texture.
