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!
