  • 4 tsp (20 mL) canola oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 1 lb/454 g), cubed 
  • 1 pinch black pepper (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Italian risotto  rice (such as Arborio) 
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 can (284 mL)  CAMPBELL'S® Condensed No Salt Added Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 3 cups (750 mL) water
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) each  lemon juice and chopped fresh oregano (or ½ tsp/3 mL dried oregano)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups (500 mL) trimmed  snow peas, halved 
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped  fresh parsley


  1. Heat half of the oil in nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with pepper, if using. Cook chicken, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until lightly browned. Transfer to plate. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. Add remaining oil, rice and garlic to pan; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in soup, water, lemon juice, oregano and Worcestershire sauce. Cook, stirring vigorously, until boiling. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat for 12 minutes. 
  3. Add snow peas; cook, covered, 5 minutes until liquid is almost evaporated and rice is tender but still slightly firm. Sprinkle with parsley.

Recipe tips

  • Trim and halve the snow peas and chop the parsley while the risotto is simmering to save on prep time!
  • Using a no-salt added soup helps you control the sodium in your recipe. Season with salt to taste, and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
  • You can switch up the herbs however you like. Try swapping the oregano with fresh thyme or tarragon, or replacing it with a handful of fresh basil, finely chopped.

    Added parm

    My husband needs to watch his sodium, but I don't, so I just added more Parm to mine and it was very tasty.

    Picky husband liked it

    I would make it again, was quite good. Thought the lemon was fairly well balanced with the rest of the dish. I subbed mushrooms for snow peas, with parmesan at the end, and served it with asperagus.
