Chicken Orzo Skillet Recipe

Here’s a great one-skillet supper that’s colorful, healthy, filling and definitely special! Our taste testers loved the blend of spices, the touch of heat and the sophisticated flavor that make this dish a must-try. Kellie Mulleavy - Lambertville, Michigan
This recipe is:

* 4 Servings
* Prep: 15 min.
* Cook: 20 min.
* 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
* 2 teaspoons salt-free garlic seasoning blend
* 1 small onion, chopped
* 1 tablespoon Crisco® Pure Olive Oil
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
* 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
* 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
* 3/4 cup uncooked orzo pasta
* 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
* 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, optional
Sprinkle chicken with garlic seasoning blend. In a large skillet, saute chicken and onion in oil for 5-6 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
