Chicken and Orzo Skillet

If you follow my blog (and if you do, thank you so much!), then you know that I am a huge fan of one pot meals and 30 minute meals.  This one is both, as well as tasting delicious, in fact there were no leftovers, always a good sign.  I made some changes to the recipe to make it easier during this weird quarantine/social distancing time so click on the link below for the original recipe.

1 onion, chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 garlic clove, minced or pressed

1 (12.5 oz) canned chicken, drained and broken up with a fork

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 cup chicken broth

3/4 cup uncooked orzo pasta

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 – 2 large handfuls fresh spinach

Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling

1  In large cast iron or other heavy skillet, saute onion in oil until almost translucent.  Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer.

2  Stir in chicken, garlic powder, tomatoes, broth, orzo, and Italian seasoning and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed.  Stir in spinach, cover until spinach is just starting to wilt.  Serve with cheese as desired.
