If you’re anything like me you are always looking for delicious ways to serve chicken. I like chicken because it’s light, protein rich, relatively inexpensive, and safe to eat in the workplace (i.e., sans the potentially offensive odor of seafood). However, when you eat as much chicken as I do it can sometimes be difficult to find chicken dishes that aren’t boring or taste just like every other chicken dish out there. This recipe is a nice diversion because it’s all about the pasta. This recipe should be called orzo pasta with chicken, spinach and feta. I want you to be able to find it on the search engines though, so I’m making sure that chicken is prominent in the title. This is because I know that many of you are looking for more ways with chicken too.
Know what else I like about this recipe? It’s a one-skillet dish and on the table in less than 45 minutes. Easy preparation, easy cleanup. As such, it’s the perfect weeknight dinner. Healthy, quick and easy. What’s not to love? If you want to make it even easier on yourself, trim and pound your chicken in advance so that it’s all ready to go when it’s time to cook. You will want to have chicken breasts that are roughly the same thickness so that they cook evenly.
One other thing that I personally love is that it uses spinach. As I’ve mentioned before, I love spinach! While you may or may not love spinach, it is a super food and intensely good for you. I hope that you will love this simple, quick and healthy dish as much as I do. Please let me know if you try it!
