salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 1/2 cups uncooked Arborio rice
7 cups hot chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
Heat the remaining oil in a separate large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the rice and mix well. Let heat for about 2 minutes, then pour in the wine. Reduce heat to medium low and start pouring in the broth about 1 cup at a time. Add more broth as each cup is absorbed. Continue in this manner until all the broth is absorbed and the rice is al dente, about 20 minutes.
Stir in the reserved onion mixture and allow to heat through. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and garnish each serving with fresh thyme.
