We love a good one-pot meal. When that one-pot meal also has all of the elements of a delicious balanced dinner, we love it even more! That's what this creamy chicken and orzo bring to the table. It’s protein-packed, full of spinach, and surprisingly creamy even without cream, thanks to the starch from the orzo as it cooks and a sprinkle of umami-packed parmesan.
Tyson® Chicken Breasts
Ground Black Pepper
Fresh Baby Spinach
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Chicken (1 lb)
into 1-inch pieces. Season with
Salt (1/4 tsp)
Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp)
In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the
Olive Oil (1 Tbsp)
Butter (1 Tbsp)
. Once the butter has melted, add the chicken and cook until no longer pink, 4-5 minutes.
Turn the heat to high and stir fry the chicken for 2-3 more minutes, until the edges begin to brown and a brown crust is forming on the bottom of the pan. Transfer the chicken to a plate or tray.
Return heat to medium. Add the remaining
Garlic (3 cloves)
Yellow Onion (1)
Olive Oil (1 Tbsp)
. Stir fry until onions are beginning to soften, around 8-10 more minutes.
Orzo Pasta (1 cup)
. Stir fry until there is no moisture remaining and the orzo begins to stick to the bottom of the pan.
Chicken Broth (2 cups)
Milk (1 cup)
, and chicken, along with any juice that accumulated on the tray. Turn heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often, until the orzo is tender.
Turn off the heat. Stir in the
Fresh Baby Spinach (2 cups)
Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup)
Lemon Juice (1)
. If it still seems too liquidy, cover the pot and wait 2-3 minutes (the orzo will continue to absorb moisture).
Serve warm with more parmesan cheese on top and a pinch of
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste)
