Tasteful Tuesday: One-Pot Chicken and Sausage Orzo

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Today we’re sharing this exceptional dish from AllRecipes – because we’ve recently fell in love with its exact ingredients list and prep instructions. One suggestion that comes at the end of the video – which we think are helpful knowing from the outset – is to cook and brown the chicken breast first then set aside until the end (to prevent overcooking). We would also recommend adding some garlic and onion for a bit more flavor, and using low-sodium chicken broth or stock to cut down on salt content. Enjoy!

Sesame & Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopPasta salads are a summer staple, and their quantity and versatility (as a meal, side dish or snack) make them perfect for serving at barbecues and seasonal parties. Therefore, we’re highlighting four pasta salad recipes from our blog just in time for the Fourth of July (click on the titles for full ingredient lists and directions).

Rotini Pasta Salad Recipe

Perhaps the most standard pasta salad, this one is made with, of course, rotini, but also cubed cheddar, bell pepper, cucumber and tomato – although you could substitute and add just about any vegetable.

BLT Pasta Salad Recipe

We like this pasta salad with rotini too, and its mayonnaise bases offers a creamy alternative to Italian dressing based pasta salads.

Artichoke-Tortellini Pasta Salad

Back to the Italian dressing, this hearty dish is made indulgent with cheese-filled tortellini.

Chicken Sesame Pasta Salad

One of our new favorites, the key ingredient here is fresh ginger.
