Ingredients
  • 1/2 rotisserie chicken, skin and bones removed (350 grams)
  • 1 cup whole wheat orzo
  • 1 1/4 cups light coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cup no salt added chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (I used Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 12 oz rainbow cherry tomatoes, halved (340 grams)
  • 8 oz sliced Baby Bella mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced and divided
  • 1/2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Oh My Spice! Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese OR 1 tbsp nutritional yeast for dairy-free
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  2. Toss halved tomatoes with olive oil and half of the garlic.  Arrange in a single layer on lined baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes and set aside.

  3. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.  Add ghee and melt, then add onion and garlic.  Sauté for 1-2 minutes, then add mushrooms and continue to sauté for another 3 minutes.

  4. Add coconut milk, chicken stock, wine, and Oh My Spice seasoning.  Cover and bring to a boil, then add orzo, salt and pepper.  Stir until orzo is covered, then lower heat to a simmer for 7 minutes.

  5. Remove pot from heat and stir in chicken, spinach, roasted tomatoes, basil, and parmesan cheese.  Cover and allow to rest for about 5 minutes or until chicken is heated through, orzo is cooked al dente, and spinach is wilted.

  6. Serve with fresh lemon zest, basil, and more parmesan cheese, if desired.

Recipe Notes
  • I left the parmesan cheese as optional in case you need to make it dairy-free using nutritional yeast.  For macro-tracking purposes, the cheese is not included in the nutrition info.
