Caesar Chicken with Orzo

1 TB vegetable oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 lb.)
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
1 cup water
1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
1 cup frozen brocolli or fresh
1 cup frozen peas and pearl onions
1/4 cup red pepper, diced
3 TB caesar or reduced-fat Caesar dressing
1/8 tsp. coarsely ground pepper

Heat oil in 10 inch skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook chicken in oil about 10 minutes or until brown on both sides.
Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.

Add broth and water to skillet; heat to boiling.
Stir in pasta; return to boil. Cook uncovered 8 to 10 minutes,
stirring occasionally.

Stir in frozen vegetables, red peppers and dressing

Add chicken to pasta mixture; sprinkle with pepper.
Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 5 minutes
or until vegetables are crisp-tender and juice of chicken
is no longer pink when center of thickest pieces are cut.

Hi, I was just reading over some of the delicious chicken recipes posted here. YUM!. I would rather have chicken than beef. I am only allowed to have beef twice a week and these recipes all sound so great, i can hardly wait to try them. Thanks to all who posted them. I am working on putting together my recipe for spaghetti sauce. My family loves it and when I visit my children, they beg me to make it for their families. I will post it as soon as I get it written down (i have it only in my head, old family recipe from many years ago).
