I'm making risotto for the very first time and I think I'd like to make this one:
bear necessities: Chicken Risotto
I might also add some spinache or some veggie as well to give it a more "all in one" meal.
I have a few questions though. Thanks so much!!!!
1. I have a fairly new stainless steel pan. Should I use that? Or stay away from that and just use my fairly big non stick frying pan?
2. Say it's done and my husband is not home from work yet or is in the shower, can it sit on the stove on simmer
3. Lastly, but very important: I have a gas stove and the burners are very hot and somewhat high even on the lowest settings. at least I think so. thinks cook up VERY fast. I don't know if I should cook it on the lowest setting on my regular burners as explained above OR cook it on my simmer side which does sort of go up to a medium but has a low point of a SIMMER. Its actually the only one that has simmer. There is one that is called the HIGH burner and the other 2 are suppose to be just regular burners, but I think even on the LOWEST setting it can be still on the high side. I hope I explained this right.
