Preparation time: 40 minutes.



Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add chicken, garlic, orzo, and broth; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 8–9 minutes, or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Stir in remaining ingredients and return to a simmer (if mixture becomes too dry, add water to prevent sticking). Simmer 5–7 minutes, or until pasta is tender and vegetables are crisp-tender.

Yield: 8 cups. Serving size: 1 cup.
