Creamy Chicken and Tomato Orzo

Press GO to unleash the Mob step by step feature.

Step 1.

Start by frying your chicken thighs on a medium heat. Allow them to brown on each side and set aside for later.

Step 2.

Take a new frying pan and add some olive oil and your rosemary. Next, chop up your chilli and add that in. Add your tomatoes, chop up your garlic and add it in. Give everything a good stir to allow for the tomatoes to soften slightly.

Step 3.

Orzo time! Add your orzo to the pan followed by your chicken stock and passata. Next, add about 142ml of single cream. Keep stirring until the orzo has cooked through and the pasta is creamy. Add salt and pepper. Chop up your basil, add this in and stir.

Step 4.

And now it’s ready to serve, place your chicken on a bed of that creamy orzo, grate some parmesan over the top and tuck in.

Try and buy skin-on chicken thighs for that crispy chicken hit in amongst the creamy orzo.
