Serving size: 4.

Ingredients:

2 boneless chicken breast
2 cups orzo
2 tbsp olive oil
3-6 cloves garlic minced (your preference)
dash of red pepper flakes
2 cans low sodium chicken broth
tender spinach leaves

Step 1: Put chicken broth in a can & bring to boil. While waiting for your broth to heat up, cut your chicken into cubes. Add the olive oil, garlic, & red pepper to a skillet & cook on medium until garlic is brown. Once broth is boiling add your orzo & reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally so it doesn’t stick.

Now add your chicken to the skillet with the garlic & sauté until cooked through. Keep stirring your orzo until cooked thoroughly & the broth cooks down. Then add to the skillet with the chicken.
