Our answer

Nigella's Chicken In A Pot With Lemon And Orzo is a popular one-pot dish that needs very little preparation or attention while it cooks. Unfortunately we don't recommend making the dish ahead as reheating the whole dish will take a long time and will likely cause the orzo to overcook and become mushy. The dish is also at its best when freshly made and has a celebratory feel to it as the chicken is presented at the table in its pot.

You can reheat leftovers either in a microwave or in a saucepan over a medium heat, stirring occasionally and adding a splash of water, if needed. Make sure that leftovers are refrigerated within 2 hours of cooking and are reheated until piping hot all of the way through. Leftovers will last for up to 3 days in the fridge.
