    This would've been even nicer with some olives in it.

    2 onions, roughly chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    1 bulb garlic, whole but slice the top off
    1 lemon, thinly sliced, seeds removed
    2 tsp greek seasoning**
    2 chicken breasts, cut in thick pieces
    1 Knorr chicken stock pot
    1 1/4 pt chicken stock made with another Knorr stock pot
    4-5 sprigs fresh tarragon, chopped
    Orzo (italian pasta) - not sure if you can get this in sainsburys/tesco - I think I got mine from an Italian shop although Waitrose might do it.


    1) Heat a pan with some Frylight and add the chicken pieces and cook until golden. Add the onions, carrots and garlic and cook for a few minutes.

    2) Add the stock pot and the stock and lemon slices. Cover and simmer for 20 mins.

    3) Remove lid and add the orzo - about 2-3 large handfuls. Stir and replace lid. Cook for a further 10 mins. If there is too much stock, take off lid and simmer for a further 5 mins. Remove the garlic bulb and squeeze the garlic into the pan. Add the tarragon and stir.


    **To make your own greek seasoning, combine the following:
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1 teaspoon dried mint
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon dried basil
    1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
    1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
    1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic

    That sounds so yummy, I think I'll make that on Thursday when my sister & mum come round. I'll be making mine with quorn though as sister is vegetarian.
