New recipe experiment. I bought a bunch of wheat Orzo that has been sitting in my cupboard…while I have been using the same old, same old recipe for it. NOT TODAY. Here is what I did:
- 2 chicken breasts – cooked and sliced up
- 2 cups cooked Orzo
- 1 cup sauteed broccoli florets
- 1 cup sauteed pepper slices (red, yellow or green)
- corn (from a can or boiled/grilled on the cob and then sliced off)
- lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
I started with cooking the Orzo – 1 cup uncooked Orzo into boiling, salted water. I cooked for roughly 9 minutes – stirring every once in awhile. I then drained and set aside. In my skillets, I made the chicken and broccoli/peppers (roughly 10 minutes). I then added all (including the corn) to the same pot –
I added lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. I also had 1/2 a loaf of sourdough bread that I toasted.
This made WAY more than my family of 4 needed…..but I saved 1/2 as a freezer meal. It will be a nice dinner on another night when I am running short on ideas/time.
