Ingredients

  • 1 tbs butter

  • 1 tbs olive oil

  • 1/2 white onion, diced

  • 1 tbs minced garlic

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 cup uncooked orzo

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 lemon juiced

  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken

  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

  • 4 cups fresh spinach

Directions

  • To a large skillet or pot over medium heat add the butter and olive oil. Once the butter is melted add in the diced onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until the onion is soft.
  • Add in the minced garlic, Italian seasoning and orzo stir well and let cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in the chicken broth, heavy whipping cream and lemon juice stir well. Let simmer uncovered for 10 minutes stirring frequently so the orzo doesn’t stick.
