Chicken Scallopini

Orzo, tomato, and zucchini toss
Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes, 1 cup chopped zucchini, and 2 minced garlic cloves; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes; sauté 1 minute or until zucchini is crisp-tender. Combine tomato mixture, 3 cups hot cooked orzo, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss well.

Garlic bread

Game Plan
1. While orzo cooks:
• Season and dredge chicken in breadcrumbs

2. While chicken cooks:

Quick Tip: Use 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic instead of fresh cloves for the orzo, tomato, and zucchini toss.
