Maggiano's Grilled Rosemary Chicken Recipe

  1. Start the risotto by bringing the stock and water to a simmer. Keep on low heat.
  2. Thaw the squash in the microwave.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and garlic, and saute a couple of minutes until tender.
  4. Add the rice, and saute for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the wine, and cook for another few minutes until cooked out.
  6. Spoon the stock into the rice mixture gradually, allowing the water to evaporate before adding more.
  7. Continue cooking for about 18 minutes. Add the squash, nutmeg, salt and pepper during the final 3 minutes of cooking. At the end, melt in the butter and add the sage and cheese.
  8. Coat the chicken breasts in vinegar and olive oil, then season with rosemary, salt and pepper.
  9. Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add the chicken and the garlic, and grill until juices run clear.
  10. Make the sauce by adding all ingredients to a small skillet over medium-high. Stir until browned.
  11. Portion the risotto onto serving plates. Top with chicken, and finish with sauce.

Butternut Squash Risotto

This recipe can serve as the base for your Maggiano's grilled rosemary chicken


  • Although Maggiano's Little Italy serves their rosemary chicken over a bed of butternut squash risotto, there are many other options (many of them less time-consuming). If you like creamy pastas, try it over fettucini Alfredo. If tangy tomato sauce is more your thing, set it atop angel hair pasta with marinara.
