Back to basics: Orzo Chicken Skillet

January 8, 2012

I forgot how much I enjoyed this dish, and when Michael suggested we make it tonight for his parents (who have bravely taken Simone for the day), I said, “great idea! Now go get the groceries!”

Hehe. See what I did there? 😉

I posted this recipe for Orzo Chicken Skillet a while ago but thought it would be worth reminding those of you who are digging the warm winter soups and stews right now. It’s a flavourful and simple combination of chicken, orzo, and veggies. I like the different cuts of veggies in this – shredded carrots, chopped mushrooms, diced tomatoes, slivers of basil.

As for the chicken, sometimes I prepare raw chicken, and sometimes I just throw in some frozen roasted chicken that I buy from the grocery store. This is often an easier way to make the dish, then “keep warm” in the crock pot before mealtime. Just be sure to add the tomatoes at the very end before serving as they will get too mushy in the crock pot.

Hope you have a chance to give it a try! Yum yum.
