Time! I was craving something a little different this week, and while we were shopping in Trader Joe's I happened to see this orzo salad that looked amazingggg.
Unfortunately it was also $5 for a small container. No thanks. So I decided to make my own!
I cubed two chicken breasts and sauteed them in a drizzle of olive oil, then added in 1.5 cups of orzo and toasted it for about 45 seconds. Cover with 1.5 cups low sodium chicken broth and 1.5 cups water, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let it simmer away until all the liquid has been absorbed.
For some freshness I mixed in a whole pound of spinach and let the residual heat wilt it down, tossed with another tbsp of olive oil, the juice of half a lemon, and some garlic salt and pepper. Top with a crumble of feta and you've got an easy meal for the week in about 45 minutes!
