We've taken inspiration from Italy for this comforting bowlful, which is made by cooking shredded chicken breast and crunchy spring greens together in a delicious broth of pesto, orzo and lemon. As well as tasting delicious, this simple and satisfying soup can be made in one pot. A quick, flavour-packed win!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Boil a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken breast[s] and cook for 3 min on each side or until golden

2 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Meanwhile, dissolve the chicken stock cube[s] in 900ml [1.8L] boiled water 

3 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Add the orzo pasta and chicken stock to the pan and cook for 8 min 

4 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Meanwhile, rip the leaves off the spring greens, discard the tough stalks, then layer the leaves over each other, roll them up and slice into very thin strips

Slice the thin strips in half lengthways

5 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Once the orzo has been cooking for 8 min, add the sliced spring greens to the pan and cook for 4-5 min further

6 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Meanwhile, chop the lemon in half

Shave half of the Italian hard cheese with a peeler, until you end up with a pile of cheese shavings 

Grate the remaining cheese

7 One-Pot Chicken, Orzo & Spring Greens Broth

Once the chicken is cooked (no pink meat!), remove it from the pan and transfer it to a board, then shred it apart, using two forks – this technique is known as ‘pulling’

Return the shredded chicken to the pan with the classic basil nut pesto, grated cheese (reserve the shavings!) and the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon

Season with salt and pepper  this is your chicken & orzo broth
