A Perfect Thursday Dinner

Mediterranean Chicken (can't find the source now)

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1 inch strips
1 1/3 cups orzo pasta, uncooked
1 1/2 cups zucchini, chopped (I used canned)
1 green or red pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can fat free chicken broth
1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat
Add chicken and stir-fry until browned
Stir in chicken broth, orzo, and garlic
Heat until boiling; reduce heat, cover and simmer until liquid absorbed (8 mins)
Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to boil
Cover and simmer, stirring once, about 5 mins

WW points per serving: 7

This recipe was delicious. I had no rosemary, so I experimented with other spices. I also had to add a little more water for the orzo to soften.
This recipe was eaten and given the thumbs up by 4 of the 6 people living here.

4 out of 6 stars? I would say that is a success. Sounds great to me.
I did not know you could get zucchini in a can. I learn so much from you.

I'm with Busy Bee Suz, I didn't realize zucchini came in a can either...I'll have to look for it the next time I'm at the store

this recipe looks delicious and easy to prepare! I'm sooo printing it out

4 out of 6 liked it, that's a majority in my eyes so its a keeper as a recipe :)

So what did the other 2 say that don't have thumbs?

It made a fine lunch the following day, as well.

Never heard of orzo pasta; pray tell... is that a Walmart Superstore item, or do I need to hit up a real grocery store?

It looks great and sounds easy, which is up my alley if I have one.
