This pasta makes me think of a Jackson Five song.
A B C! Easy as one, two, three!
As simple as do re mi, A B C, one, two, three, baby, you and me girl!
Ya know? Because it's only three ingredients? Actually in total it's five. Six if you include salt. Seven if you include pepper. Okay, eight if you include olive oil. But I don't ever include salt and pepper as ingredients. I mean, they ARE ingredients. And vital ones at that. But in the spirit of Jackson Five, folks, I'm leaving it out of the total number. Don't be cross at me.
Alright, SO! Grab some chicken thighs, a Progresso Fire Roasted Tomato Sauce recipe starter, and some orzo. While you're at it, grab some fresh parsley and Parmesan cheese. They're not pictured because they were still in hair and makeup.
So as the song goes, it's A - sear your chicken. Season it. Both sides. Done.
Then B - pour that sauce in, ohhhhh mama pour it in. Let it all cook and simmer for a few minutes.
Then B.2 - shred that chicken, right in the skillet! You can go willy nillly on it and get it super shredded, or keep it in bigger chunks. It's all about what makes you dance.
And then C - add the cooked orzo! Stir stir stir. Get it all incorporated and in love.
Then uh oh, there's that cheese.
And then oh me Lawd, some fresh parsley.
And then you scarf it up right out of the skillet! I MEAAAAN serve it in little bowls to your starving family?
I guess the whole serving it to your loved ones thing is recommended.
