Recipe Notes

As mentioned, you will need orzo for this recipe. However, Orzo is that it is usually made with white flour. if you are following the Mediterranean Diet, you will need a wheat flour orzo, which you can easily find online. .
You will also need chicken for this recipe.
I suggest using a precooked chicken breast such as chicken strips or chunks. However, even better would be to use leftover chicken breast or a rotisserie chicken from the local grocery store.
Please see recipe post for details.
