My Step-Son loves Greek food! He is so good about trying new things and is always encouraging me to make new recipes. He says just make it up! So I do. And one night this was my Mediterranean creation.
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 can diced tomatoes
1/4 red onion chopped
15 pitted kalamta olives sliced in half
1/4 c peporchini rings cut in 1/4
rosemary garlic seasoning blend
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp powdered rosemary (you can omit this is you want)
1 1/2 cup orzo
1/2 cup chicken broth
Bring salted water to boil and cook til hard al dente. Drain and set aside. Heat pan and add 1 tbs olive oil. Sprinkle chicken with rosemary garlic seasoning blend and place in hot pan. Sear meat (careful not to burn blend) 3 -4 minutes each side. Remove chicken and keep warm. In same pan cook onion 1-2 minutes then add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Add olives, peppers, salt and pepper, rosemary, and orzo. Add the chicken back in and the chicken stock. Cover and cook for 5-8 minutes. Serve immediately with crumbled feta cheese.
This is great with a green salad and taziki dressing, maybe some spanokopeta also. Not only is this yummy and healthy, it is super easy and stress free cooking for a great meal after a long day at work!
