Tip
To reheat leftover risotto, place in a small saucepan over medium, adding a little water, broth or wine to loosen it up but not so much that it gets mushy. Take off heat as soon as it’s just warm.

Tips

  • Browning chicken in the large pot and then removing it to cook the veggies in the same pan helps build flavor. The more flavor you build in the pan, the more flavor your stew will have.
  • Time-saver: Save 20 min by swapping in quick-cooking barley. Just stir it into the large heavy pot when adding the broth.
