One-Pot Creamy Chicken and Spinach Orzo

5.0
1 Ratings
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.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Cut the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1 lb) into 1-inch pieces. Season with Salt (1/4 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) .
Step 2
In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the Butter (1 Tbsp) and Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . Once the butter has melted, add the chicken and cook until no longer pink, 4-5 minutes.
Step 3
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.
Step 4
Return heat to medium. Add the remaining Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) and the Yellow Onion (1) and Garlic (3 cloves) . Stir fry until onions are beginning to soften, around 8-10 more minutes.
Step 5
Add the Orzo Pasta (1 cup) . Stir fry until there is no moisture remaining and the orzo begins to stick to the bottom of the pan.
Step 6
Add 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.
Step 7
Turn off the heat. Stir in the Fresh Baby Spinach (2 cups) , Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) , and Lemon (1) . If it still seems too liquidy, cover the pot and wait 2-3 minutes (the orzo will continue to absorb moisture).
Step 8
Serve warm with more parmesan cheese on top and a pinch of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste) .
