,Risottos are usually packed with carbs and fat but few nutrients. Our version uses our chicken chipolatas & we’ve replaced some of the rice with loads of delicious vegetables, so you’ll still have a satisfying portion whilst tasting indulgent!

Chicken Sausage, Pea and Courgette Risotto

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Serves 4


10 HECK Chicken Italia Sausages

2 large courgettes (500g in total), cut into ½cm dice
1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
125g arborio risotto rice
1 clove garlic, crushed
600ml reduced-salt hot chicken or vegetable stock
Grating nutmeg
1tsp Dijon mustard
325g frozen petit pois, thawed
Handful basil leaves, chopped, plus a few leaves to garnish
30g Parmesan, shaved

Spray oil


  • Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil. Add the courgettes and cook over a medium-high heat for 5 mins until reduced in size by about a third. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • Spray the pan with a little more oil. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat for 5 mins until soft.
  • Stir in the rice and garlic, cook for 1 min. Add a splash of stock, nutmeg, mustard and season with freshly ground black pepper. Keep stirring until the stock has been absorbed.
  • Continue to add the stock, a splash at a time until it has all been absorbed, stirring continuously throughout. This should take about 15 - 20 mins.
  • Meanwhile, spray another large non-stick frying pan with oil. Squeeze out small blobs of the sausage meat into the pan and cook over a medium-high heat for 3-4 mins, turning once, until cooked through and deep golden.
  • Stir the petit pois, cooked courgettes, cooked chicken sausages and basil into the risotto, adding a splash of boiling water if it’s too thick. Cook for 2 mins until piping hot.
  • Serve immediately, scattered with the Parmesan.
  • Enjoy!
