Chicken Orzo Skillet Meal Recipe and link up idea

I'm thinking of doing a link up for recipes on Wednesdays. It could be something that you've made and want to share, or it could be something delicious that you found on Pinterest that you want to share!
Let me know what you guys think about the idea, and I might start a link up for us all to participate in and share some yummy recipes!

Now, getting back to business....

I'm here with another great recipe that I got from my good blog buddy, Shari at The Daily Dish. I've gotten SO MANY great recipes from her and her blog, and I love that she lets me share them with you whenever I try a new one! If you haven't checked out her blog, go do it...and make sure you have something to wipe your face with, because you WILL drool!

What You Need:

-1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
-12 oz uncooked orzo
-2 tomatoes, chopped
-3 cups baby spinach (or one salad bag of baby spinach)
-juice from 1 lemon
-1 tsp olive oil
-1/2 cup white wine
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
-2 tsp tomato paste
-feta cheese crumbles for topping
-1/4 cup reserved cooking water from the orzo

What You Do:

1. Cook the orzo according to package instructions. Drain and set aside (remember to reserve that 1/4 cup of cooking water)

2. Season the chicken with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and the chicken. Saute the chicken until it's cooked through. And remove it from the pan.

3. In the same skillet, add in the reserved cooking water, tomatoes, tomato paste, red pepper flakes, and a little bit of salt and pepper. Cook for approximately 2 minutes.

4. Add the orzo, chicken, wine and spinach to the skillet and mix until the spinach has wilted (this may require you to put a lid on the skillet for a little bit).

5. Add in the lemon juice, and stir. 

6. Add the feta cheese, mix, and serve.


Thank you, Shari, for another yummy recipe!
