Ingredients...

8 free-range eggs

2 litres water

32g Essential Cuisine Chicken Stock Mix

400g chicken breasts

250g orzo pasta

120ml lemon juice

75g butter

Small handful chopped parsley

Cayenne pepper

Method...

  1. Poach 4 of the eggs in simmering water for 3-4 minutes, then move to a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process. Refresh in hot water just before serving. Add the Essential Cuisine Chicken Stock Mix with the water.

  2. Heat the stock to a gentle simmer and add the salt. Poach the chicken breast for 20 minutes. Remove from the stock and leave to cool.

  3. Bring the stock to the boil, add the orzo pasta. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 7-8 minutes.

  4. When the chicken breast is cool enough to handle, slice into 4 lengthways then cut across into strips and set aside.

  5. Whisk the remaining 4 eggs with the lemon juice in a bowl. Pour half the hot stock over the egg and lemon mixture, whisking all the time. Put the egg, lemon and stock back into the pan, return to the heat and stir until the eggs thicken (at about 70–80C). Don’t cook any further.

  6. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter and parsley.

  7. Add the chicken strips to the soup and ladle into individual bowls. Add a reheated poached egg to each serving and sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper.
