1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a heavy-based saucepan. Add chicken; cook for 3-4 minutes until coloured and sealed all over, stirring regularly. Add shallots, garlic and remaining oil;
cook for about 5 minutes or until shallots are softened, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and rice; cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring.
2. Add wine; cook rapidly for 1-2 minutes, stirring until almost evaporated. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add stock a ladleful at a time, allowing it to be absorbed before adding more, stirring continuously, until rice is tender. This takes about 20 minutes; you may not need to add all of the stock.
3. Meanwhile, cook broccoli in a separate pan of boiling water for about 5 minutes or until tender. Drain well; keep warm.
4. Gently stir broccoli and parsley into risotto; season with black pepper and serve.
