Instructions
1

Preheat the oven grill to a medium-high heat. To prepare the ingredients, peel and crush the garlic. Cut the lemon and red onion into wedges, and the chicken thighs into 2 cm cubes. Halve the cherry tomatoes and wash the baby spinach.

2

In a small jug combine the olive oil, garlic and the juice from half of the lemon wedges.

3

Skewer the chicken thigh cubes, red onion wedges and cherry tomatoes, alternating as you go. Lay them out on a lined grill tray. Pour over the marinade and turn the skewers to coat them completely. Tip: If you’re using wooden skewers, wrap the exposed ends with foil.

4

Place the chicken skewers under the grill and cook for 8 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through.

5

Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the risoni and cook for 8 minutes or until ‘al dente’. Drain and return the risoni to the saucepan. Stir through the baby spinach and traditional pesto until the spinach is wilted and coated in pesto.

6

To serve, divide the risoni between plates and top with the chicken skewers. Serve with the remaining lemon wedges.
