Porcini Risotto with Chicken and Rosemary

I don't think anything welcomes brisk fall days as well as a warm kitchen smelling of risotto. The easy finish of a touch of porcini oil adds that warm earthiness to this dish. This dish is perfect as a side, or add shredded warmed up leftover roasted chicken to make it a perfectly easy fall dinner.


 6 Cups of More then Gourmet roasted chicken stock

 3 1/2 tablespoons butter

 1 1/2 tablespoons rice bran oil
2 large shallots, chopped
