Updated September 9, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 lb. chicken breast strips for stir-frying
  • 7 oz. (1 cup) uncooked orzo or rosamarina (rice-shaped pasta)
  • 2 (14.5-oz.) cans stewed tomatoes, undrained, cut up
  • 1 (9-oz.) pkg. frozen baby lima beans, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Frank's™ RedHot™ Original cayenne pepper sauce

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 2
    Stir in all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and orzo is tender, stirring occasionally.

  • Chicken strips for stir-frying conveniently save prep and cleanup time. Look for packages of chicken strips in the grocery store's poultry section.
  • Substitute 2 cups of thawed frozen cut green beans for the lima beans.
  • For spicier flavor, add more hot pepper sauce to the sauce.
  • Fresh basil brightens recipes simply and quickly; omit the dry basil and stir in 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil just before serving.
