With Fall right around the corner and school back in session it seems like we are always rushed for dinner, it can be hard to always figure out a quick, easy and healthy dinner idea. I know I feel the same way! I am always searching for a new recipe to try. I found this one:
Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles
“This is a simple recipe with a spicy kick for garlic lovers. It is my combination of a much loved linguine and clam sauce dish and a recent introduction to orzo pasta. I have several variations for this recipe. Add more red pepper for extra spice. Substitute the chicken for clams or shrimp. Substitute the spinach leaves for diced tomatoes. I’ve also added spices such as basil, rosemary and oregano bringing a distinct Italian flavor to the dish.”
Prep 15 mins Cook 15 mins Ready In 30 mins
- 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.
