Chicken and Orzo Recipe

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • Seasoning
  • 30 ozs chicken broth (can be broth or water/chicken bouillon)
  • 2 c. spinach, chopped
  • Cauliflower rice, 2 c. (I buy it frozen and thaw it)
  • 28 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 2 c. orzo, uncooked
  • Minced onion
  • 2 c. cheddar (reserve some for the top)
  • 1 can cream of chicken
  • 2 packets Italian dressing mix


Cook the chicken and then cut it up.  Mix everything in a giant bowl.  Place in a 13×9 greased dish.  This amount made that 13×9 and an 11×8 pan.  Sprinkle reserved cheese on top.  Bake at 350, uncovered, for about 40 minutes.

I didn’t have many children here, only 5 kids ate here.  We were able to eat the entire smaller dish.  The 13×9 dish, I wrapped and froze for next week!


**You can substitute Ranch packets instead of Italian packet.  Also, taco seasoning can be used as a substitute…maybe add a can of corn to that and make it Mexican flavored.**  This chicken and orzo recipe was really good.  It is one I will definitely make again because I can sneak so much goodness into it without my family thinking I’m killing them.
