Re: Grilled chicken and orzo-What can I make with it for dinner?

I ended up searching all recipes with ingredients chicken and orzo. This is the recipe I made

Garlic Chicken and Orzo Noodles serving for 4

1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
salt to taste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
grated Parmesan cheese for topping


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add orzo pasta, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the garlic and red pepper 1 minute, until garlic is golden brown. Stir in chicken, season with salt, and cook 2 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned and juices run clear. Reduce heat to medium, and mix in the parsley and cooked orzo. Place spinach in the skillet. Continue cooking 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.

I used the grilled chicken instead of saute in the pan. I just added it for reheating after garlic was ready since I grilled it earlier in the afternoon. Also I added a can of garbanzo beans. It was really good any really easy plus a bonus that all 3 kids ate it and liked it!
