    500g pack chicken breast fillets, diced

    2. Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion, cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat to soften, then add the chicken and cook for a further 5 minutes to seal. Season and then increase the heat. Add the chives and mushrooms, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the spinach leaves for the last minute to wilt.

    3. Remove the pan from the heat and tip the cooked orzo into the chicken mixture. Then stir in the crème fraîche. Transfer into a baking dish and dot over the feta.
