"I've whizzed up spinach and added it to chicken and orzo to make this dish super green (and to sneak in extra veg!). I then topped it with roasted cherry tomatoes and melty cheddar. Popeye would be proud!"

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle

Peel and roughly chop the garlic

2

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

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and baby spinach and cook for 2-3 min or until wilted

3

Whilst the spinach is cooking, dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 400ml [750ml] boiled water

Once wilted, add the cooked spinach (reserve the pan) and stock to a food processor (or use a stick blender!) and blitz until smooth – this is your spinach stock

4

Cut the chicken breast into small bite-sized pieces

Return the reserved pan to a high heat with 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] olive oil

Once hot, add the chopped chicken and cook for 3-4 min or until browned all over

5

Add the orzo to the browned chicken and cook for 30 secs

Add the spinach stock, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!), the orzo is tender with a slight bite and most of the liquid has been absorbed

Once everything is cooked, add the soft cheese and stir it all together

6

Whilst the orzo is cooking, add the cherry tomatoes to a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt

Put the tray in the oven for 10-15 min or until softening and starting to burst

7

Grate the cheddar cheese
