Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 oz each)
  • 1 cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32 oz carton)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo or rosamarina pasta
  • 1 bag (12 oz) frozen broccoli cuts
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-fat Caesar dressing
  • Dash of coarsely ground pepper

Directions

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil about 10 minutes, turning once, until brown on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
  • 2
    Carefully add broth and water to hot skillet; heat to boiling. Stir in pasta; heat to boiling. Cook uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in broccoli, bell pepper and dressing (cut any large broccoli pieces in half).
  • 3
    Add chicken to pasta mixture; sprinkle with pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).

  • Serve this easy meal with a tossed lettuce and tomato wedge salad topped with your favorite dressing.
  • People often think orzo is rice because of its shape and size. It actually is pasta, and because it is small, it cooks very quickly.
