In a wide, heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter over medium heat and add chicken and Mediterranean Dill Risotto Mix. Stir for 1 min., or until mixture is coated in butter and aromatic. While stirring, gradually pour in 3 cups hot water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer (uncovered) for 15 to 17 min., or until liquid is mostly absorbed, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium and add remaining 1 cup hot water. Stir constantly for 2 to 3 min., or until rice is tender and mixture is creamy. If risotto is too thick, loosen with a splash of hot water. Serve immediately.
