Pantry Must Haves:
1/2 lb orzo pasta
1 large chicken breast grilled
1/4 to 1/2 cup of salad dressing
salt & pepper
Cook orzo according to package directions, drain and cool. In a large bowl shred chicken on top of the pasta.
Add chopped veggies (olives, sun dried tomatoes, whatever you like)
and the dressing, stir well
and season to taste.
Here's an easy way to make leftover chicken and half a box of orzo into a meal. Just add some fresh veggies from the fridge (I meant to add kalamata olives but I was out!) and a few table spoons of your favorite dressing (with this dish I like a citrus vinaigrette) salt and pepper and you're done. It makes a great meal or a side dish. The best part is the tiny orzo pasta doesn't take over like larger shaped pastas tend to do. Enjoy! XO Martha
