Mediterranean Chicken Risotto

“Baby spinach, semi-dried tomatoes and olives are a great combination in this risotto. As I have only just discovered the delights of olives I am finding more and more ways to use them. Just to note, a few people making this have found that one cup of semi-dried tomatoes is too overpowering, so you may want to cut it back to half a cup. (Please not: The sun-dried tomatoes listed are actually semi-dried.)”
