  • 7 oz can sweetcorn corn-on-the-cob
  • 2 oz toasted unsalted peanuts

  • Stir in the saffron strands and salt and pepper to taste. Add the chicken

Risottos can be frozen, before adding the Parmesan cheese, for up to 1 month, but remember to reheat this risotto thoroughly as it contains chicken.
