The Never Ending Chicken

This chick really just keeps on giving! Not a scrap has been wasted.

The final leftover chicken from our Sunday roast chicken became an Orzo Chicken Risotto last night…

I softened a chopped red onion with a crushed clove of garlic in some olive oil for about 5 mins.

Then on a medium heat, I tipped a cup of dried orzo into the pan gave it a good stir. 

With the stock I made from the bones I poured/spooned (it was pretty gelatinous) about two cupfuls into the pan and stirred it continuously so the orzo didn’t stick.

When the orzo was very nearly ready, I added the chopped leftover roast chick, half a cup of peas and heated through thoroughly. It needed a little drizzle of water to loosen the consistency.

All in all, it took about 20-25 mins to get this on the plate and the kiddos demolished it. As did I. Ideal family fodder using leftovers and store cupboard ingredients 😘
