2 chicken thigh fillets (skinless)
1 cup (uncooked) arborio rice
½ a leek, finely sliced
1 large garlic clove
1 tin cream of mushroom soup
3 tsp skim milk powder
3 cubes or ½ cup chopped spinach
Handful of grated cheese (optional)

In a large frypan, cook the chicken until starting to brown, add the leek, garlic and rice. Allow that to heat for about 30 seconds to a minute (don’t let the rice or garlic burn), and then add about 1 cup boiling water. Stirring well. Mix the milk powder with about 1/2 cup of boiling water, and add that to the pan. Stir until that liquid has been soaked up, then add the tin of mushroom soup, spinach and cheese if you wish.  Keep stirring and adding more water as needed, as the rice mixture starts to soak up the liquids. When it is almost ready – when the rice is just a little firm, remove from heat and put a lid on the saucepan and leave stand for 5 minutes before serving and the risotto should have finished cooking in the residual heat.
