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!
