Chicken & Orzo Skillet
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 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. Stir in the tomatoes, spinach, broth, orzo, Italian seasoning and pepper flakes if desired. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed. Garnish with cheese if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

This was very good. I was worried that my family would cringe about the spinach, but everyone enjoyed it. Definitely a keeper!
