After a short interlude (date night, more of which later), we’re back on the 7 days challenge. Tonight, the hubby was replaced by my good friend and fellow blogger Annie Bean as we headed into Day 3.
One-pot Chicken with Orzo and Dill
Ingredients, serves 2:
- Boneless skinless chicken thighs, 4
- Chicken Stock, 500ml
- Orzo 150g
- Dill, 1/2 a small bunch, chopped
- Butter, 25g
- Lemon, 1/2 zested and juiced
Put the chicken thighs and stock in a wide shallow pan. Bring to a simmer then cook for 10 minutes. Add the orzo, put on a lid and cook for another 6-8 mins or until tender. Take out the thighs and shred then add back to the pan with the dill, butter and lemon. Serve extra lemon wedges on the side.
I didn’t have any fresh dill so I used parsely and thyme instead. I also used chicken breasts instead of thighs and poached as per the instructions. We were expecting this to be quite bland but it actually tasted really nice. The orzo has a lovely texture and was surprisingly filling. I’ll make this again and maybe add garlic and some peas or perhaps roasted peppers to bulk it out. 7/10
