Scenario:

Dice the onion and fry it on a medium heat, until lightly golden, add rice. When rice becomes transparent (after about 2 min), add wine. After the wine has evaporated, gradually add hot vegetable stock (about half a glass at a time). When rice absorbs the liquid, add another portion of stock (repeat for about 10 min). In the meantime, on a separate pan, fry diced chicken breast in olive oil until golden brown. Then, add the clean, chopped asparagus and continue cooking for about 2-3 minutes. Combine with rice, season with some pepper. Cook together until rice is al dente (all together about 15 minutes). Depending on desired consistency, more stock may be added (it will give more liquid, creamy texture). Add the mascarpone at the end, stir. Serve with grated parmesan.
