Creamy Italian Chicken and Orzo Pasta

I tried this new recipe that I happened to love, but Cam was not quite a fan of (but said he still liked it).

It is SUPER simple and quick so I would recommend it alone for that – but will leave it up to you for your review

Creamy Italian Chicken and Orzo Pasta


1 Lb (2-3) chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 small zucchini chopped
½ tomato chopped
1 cup broccoli
1 (10 oz) tub Philadelphia Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Crème
2 cups hot cooked orzo pasta


*Cook chicken and zucchini in skillet (I used a touch of olive oil and even went as far as to cook the zucchini separately and season with salt and pepper) until chicken is no longer pink
*Steam broccoli (simple to do in the microwave with a bit of water)
*Add cooking crème, tomatoes, and zucchini, cook on medium heat for 2 minutes stirring frequently
*Serve over pasta

  • I loved the veggies in this and that there was quite a bit of sauce. I’m usually not a fan of pre-prepared sauces from the store, but this one gets my approval.
  • One of the reviews I read online said that this doesn’t have the “from scratch” taste – which I think is why Cam didn’t totally love it – but it is so nice how easy and quick this is and I think still tastes delicious.
