Healthy Take Out

Recipes

There are lots of occasions that give me a chance to make dinner for other people. From hosting people at our house, to taking dinner when a loved one is lost or a new baby is born, I love cooking for other people. I usually find it easiest to cook when people are coming to my house, but this meal challenges my original thought.

I took dinner to the cutest family, who live down the street and just had a baby girl! I wanted to make something they could reheat and that would travel easily, so this meal fit perfectly!

Chicken Feta Artichoke Orzo - a variation of the shrimp-artichoke- orzo

  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts – quartered
  • 1 lb. orzo
  • 2 grilled chicken breasts
  • 1 container of reduced fat feta cheese
  • garlic, salt and pepper, italian seasonings, basil, etc.
  1. Put the can of tomatoes and artichokes (with all of their juice) into a pan to simmer.
  2. Add seasonings if your prefer.
  3. Boil water and cook orzo as directed.
  4. While things are cooking, chop up the grilled chicken into small pieces
  5. When orzo is done, drain but don’t rinse, and add tomato/artichoke mixture, plus chicken and 3/4 container of feta.
  6. Stir until mixed. Top with remaining feta!

*This can easily be reheated!

Bread to go: Fresh French bread, sliced and buttered with herb butter (italian seasonings, garlic, s+p, stirred into room temp. butter)

Wrapped in foil for easy reheating!
