sometimes i get confused...

Hi, my name is Rachel Ray and I make 30 minute meals. That means in the time it takes you to read this blog post.... Oh wait, my life isn't a t.v. show, huh? Hmmm. Oh well...Like I said, our house is a disaster. A disaster with a 2 inch layer of dust over it. Delicious, right?! We literally spent all day Saturday and Sunday working on the concrete. And we STILL. AREN'T. DONE. So cooking doesn't really take president over much else but with this dish, it's easy, peasy, lemon sqeezy.

Chicken and Orzo
adapted from Pillsbury
Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Here's what you need:
-1 tbsp of veggie oil
-1 pound uncooked chicken, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
-1 clove of garlic
-1 3/4 cup of chicken broth
-1 cup of uncooked orzo
-1 can Italian style stewed tomatoes
-1 medium zucchini
-1/4 tsp italian seasoning
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-parmesan cheese

Here's what you do:
1. Cook the chicken and garlic in the veggie oil until brown and crispy. About 5 minutes.
2. Stir in the chicken broth and pasta and heat until boiling, reduce to medium heat and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed.
3. Stir in the tomatoes and zuchini and let cook for another 5-10 minutes.
4. Sprinkle on your parmesan cheese and put in your mouth.
