This salad was a real winner. It was a great way to use leftover chicken schnitzel.
Leftover crumbed chicken
Orzo – a cup
Fish sauce or salt
Heat your mixture of oil and butter in a pan and then add your orzo and fry it off for a minute or two.
Add your stock – I used a pork and celery one I made recently. I didn't bother to heat the stock first – orzo is a pasta not a rice. Season with your fish sauce and pepper. (If your stock has salt in it, be careful not to make it too salty)
Let it cook until the orzo is tender – about 15 minutes or so and let it cool.
When still warm but not hot add the other ingredients and serve. Check for seasoning right at the end to see if more salt or pepper is needed.
This 'salad' got a firm seal of approval from the better half.
