Chicken Nuggets with Orzo
These Chicken Nuggets have a wonderful Teriyaki flavor and a very thin breaded coating. If you don’t have the seafood breader, flour with do perfectly fine. I do not add any additional salt to this recipe since the Teriyaki has plenty of salt in it. The Nuggets are quick and easy to make after a long day at work. Served with a green salad or a side dish of Orzo makes it a light and tasty meal.
3 pieces chicken breasts, skinless, boneless
1/2 cup Teriyaki sauce
3/4 cup seafood breader (House Autry), or Flour
2 tbsp water, cold
Cut chicken breasts up into 1 1/2 – 2 inch pieces. Place in bowl, add teriyaki sauce and let marinate for 10 minutes. Drain off excess liquid and coat with seafood breader. Shake off excess breader. Spray pan with cooking spray. Cook chicken nuggets uncovered over medium heat, turning to brown all sides. Then add 2 tablespoons cold water to the pan and immediately cover the pan with a lid. Continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy.

Orzo with Grape Tomatoes and Feta Cheese
I just love Orzo! I serve it with everything, even things Orzo should not be served with. Orzo is so versatile and the combinations for what you can add to these tiny little pastas are endless. I saw this recipe on TV somewhere but I don’t recall which TV show it was on, so I am not able to give proper credit.
And so, the other day my son came home from College. After a semester of cafeteria food he seems really happy to finally get some home cooked meals. I served this Orzo with my Teriyaki Chicken Nuggets and it got the official “head nod” stamp of approval. I was delighted! This Orzo dish is light, delicious and so easy to make that even a college student could make it.
1 cup Orzo pasta
5 oz. grape tomatoes
3-4 tbsp feta cheese
1 tbsp butter
1 large sprig Basil
Start by cutting grape tomatoes into halves. Fill a small cooking pot with water and season with salt. Once water is boiling add Orzo and cook for 9 minutes. Drain pasta and place back into cooking pot. Add butter, tomatoes, feta cheese and basil. Stir and serve.
