I tell you guys, best decision ever! For about the same price I made this delicious and easy 1 skillet meal.
Maybe lady luck was on my side because all the mayor components were on sale! The rest we all have in our pantries.
A homemade meal to feed 4 for about $5 (well not counting the caramel apple candy corn and diet pop I got)!
This is your ideal Fall and Winter meal, easy, warm and comforting! In my book it doesn't get any better than that. Dinner is done in no time leaving plenty of time to enjoy the crisp weather and sunsets outside with the family.
Thank You for your visit to the blog today! I hope you are able to try this recipe and enjoy it as much as we did. Remember my friends, everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
Orzo and Chicken Autumn Skillet Meal
1 Pd Chicken Tenders (was on sale)
1 Pd Baby Spinach (was on sale for $1)
1 Small can Mushrooms slices (was on sale for $.89)
1 Large Onion, sliced
1 Clove Garlic, minced
2 Cup Chicken Broth
1/3 Cup Orzo (was on sale for $1)
1 Tbsp oil for browning
Season your chicken as you usually do with salt and pepper. I add a pinch of celery salt to mine all the time.
In a large skillet add the oil. Let it get hot and add your onion and garlic clove. Cook until your onions are transparent, always keeping an eye on your garlic not to burn. Add the chicken and brown. Add spinach, mix in with the chicken. Add orzo, mushrooms and broth. Cook for the time indicated on the box. I cooked mine 12 minutes. We really don't like our pasta quite al dente, neither mushy so that time was good for me. If you like it more al dente by all means cook it for only 8 minutes which is the box recommended time.
Let it sit for a couple of minutes for the pasta to absorb the sauce and serve with Parmesan cheese and bread. Enjoy
