Ingredients
  • 1 chicken thigh, skin on, deboned
  • A few mushrooms, sliced
  • A few spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 60g orzo pasta
  • 2tsp olive oil
Method
  • Season the chicken thigh generously with ground black pepper and pan-fry it skin-side down in the olive oil over a medium heat for 8-10 mins until the skin is extra-crispy. Turn the chicken over and cook for 2-3 more mins, then add the mushrooms, spring onions and garlic, plus a pinch more black pepper.

  • Fry together until the mushrooms are cooked and the garlic starts to colour. Add the orzo and 50ml water.

  • Stir to deglaze the pan and let it all simmer for 15-20 mins – add more water if needed. Once the liquid is absorbed and the chicken and orzo are cooked, season to taste and serve.
