    I would assume it would be on here: http://www.lidiasitaly.com/entrees
    If it's not, it may have been from a previous season or her Family Table show.

      Lidia is not generous with her recipes. She maintains a few on her web site, but otherwise, you have to purchase one of the companion cookbooks. And if you do find something on her website that you want to try, print it. It might be gone the next time you go to look.

        You might also try www.cookstr.com -- I know she has recipes there as well.

            the recipe looks like an "easy" risotto. i wonder how much difference in consistency there is using this technique versus that for a risotto, with staged additions of hot liquid.

            it is hard to beat the flavor and comfort factor of chicken and rice! the aromatics in the recipe would just enhance that even more. i'd better make this before the weather gets too warm outside (HA HA).

              It looks delicious and I love Lidia, I happy I saw this post because I think it will be dinner soon.

                Albeit a bit late, I did make this last week and it was delicious!! Just like you said - total comfort factor!

                Wow, I can't thank you enough abqpatt. I usually DVR Lidia's show so I can copy the recipes I want by hand since they're very hard or impossible to find online. (They want you to buy the book.) Three of the recipes I didn't get a chance to copy are here on this site. Thank you again.

                One method to also try is visiting your local library. They may have some of her books that you can borrow for FREE vs going out and buying them.

                  Her new season has begun airing, and lidiasitaly.com has LOTS of recipes posted right now. You might want to grab the ones that sound good since she does take them down after the first season airing.
