Our chicken and pea risoni pasta (also known as Orzo) recipe is an incredibly versatile dish!
You can have it as a side, or a main, for dinner, or for lunch. Serve it cold or hot, it will be whatever kind of meal you want it to be.
Creamy and salty, its texture and flavour profiles are just amazing.
STEP 1 | Cook risoni in a pot of salted boiling water for 10 minutes or until al dente. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute or until bright green. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
STEP 2 | Meanwhile, fry the chicken breast fillets in a pan until browned. Slice into thick pieces.
STEP 3 | Place the cream, parmesan, mint, oil, garlic in the jug of a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
STEP 4 | Place the risoni, peas, chicken, bocconcini and spinach in a serving bowl. Drizzle with cream mixture and gently toss to combine. Add extra thickened cream if needed.
