I was thinking about spicing up the risotto but I don't know what ingredients to use to do that. Alternatively I could do marinated chicken but I don't have a good and easy and certain to work with the risotto for that either. I had the Cola wings froma chinese friend and he combined them with some spicy chinese white beans. However I fill that will not fill the plate enough. Any thoughts on how to get a tasty dish from mushroom and spinach risotto and chicken?
Alex.cam, what are you going to serve as entrée? Just curious...
For the sweet risotto, you could drop the spinach, keep the mushrooms, put in some roughly minced sausage, end it with grated pecorino. Here is another thread in this forum (blatant self-promoting attempt with photos) Risotto with porcini mushrooms and pork sausage
If you do want to keep spinach, I cannot think of a proper solution, maybe just try adding some good old grated pecorino to spice it up a little.
