‘Secretly tasty’


As probably any other person, I enjoy cooking, baking and eating:), but there are days when I am out of ideas of what to prepare; I don’t want to repeat meals we already had so I look for inspiration. This recipe was a sudden creation and guess what, it tastes absolutely great and it has an ingredient I never used before: orzo.

Take a look at the final result and try it yourself, let me know if you like it!

Ingredients:

400g Chicken breast, 200g Curly kale leaves, 150g Orzo, salt, black pepper, pinch of paprika, Serve with cherry tomatoes and fresh coriander

Method:

I usually cut chicken breast in small cubes, they cook easier and absorb flavour faster.

Add a little bit of oil to a pan, then the chicken cubes, salt and pepper; slow cook them for about 5 minutes then add the paprika and stir. Once the chicken starts to get golden add water, about 400ml, bring it to boil then add the orzo.

Turn the heat all the way down, cover the pan with the lid, cook on low heat for about 10 minutes until the orzo is soften. If needed add more water and reduce.

 Add the kale and cover the pan with the lid for another 5 minutes.

Serve right away with fresh coriander and a colourful tomato salad.
