Greekie Chickie


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!


About the plaid and paisley kitchen

I am just like you, a modern woman juggling life, family, work, and always struggling to find time to work on my hobbies. As the wife of a very picky eater with very definitive likes and dislikes, (Mostly misconceptions of what something may taste like.) I can honestly say that every recipe on here is “Stevie Approved!” I am the Great-Granddaughter of German immigrants and I learned to cook in my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. As I grew and gained experience in my own kitchen I took the lessons I learned and branched out and started new traditions mixed with Old World styling. I was raised by a very artistic and talented mother, and if I inherited just a tad of her abilities then I consider myself very lucky. In primary and secondary schooling I was always heavily involved in art and drama. I still have a great passion for the theater. I think that a household should have a healthy dose of dramatic flair. I feel that food should be prepared with quality and fresh ingredients, and that meals should be served with love. I believe a home should be comfortable and beautiful at the same time, and that an organized home is a happy home!
