The perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the leeks for 5 mins over a medium-high heat, adding a splash of boiling water from the kettle halfway through to steam them slightly. Add the orzo, asparagus and stock, and cook for 10 mins over a high heat, stirring continuously.
Stir through the crème fraîche, lemon zest, juice, chicken, peas and most of the chives. Season and keep on the heat for 3-4 mins to warm through the chicken, adding a splash of water to loosen if needed. Divide between bowls and top with the remaining chives.
