Fire Roasted Tomato Chicken Pasta  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

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.


(Some of) The ingredients for Fire Roasted Tomato Chicken Pasta

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.


Searing the chicken

So as the song goes, it's A - sear your chicken. Season it. Both sides. Done.


Pouring in Progresso Recipe Starter

Then B - pour that sauce in, ohhhhh mama pour it in. Let it all cook and simmer for a few minutes.


Shredding chicken in skillet

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.


Adding cooked orzo

And then C - add the cooked orzo! Stir stir stir. Get it all incorporated and in love.


Orzo stirred in

Like this.


Adding cheese

Then uh oh, there's that cheese.


Adding parsley

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?
