Easy Orzo & Chicken Salad

Being a busy mom makes me want to hit the easy button – a lot. True confession, but really – a lot. So when I came up with this recipe for this easy orzo & chicken salad I just had to share. I know you want easy, kid approved, family friendly recipes just like I do.

Since I know you’re busy and the last thing you want to do after a long day of work is take a long time cooking dinner, especially during summer months, when the weather is warm and it’s staying lighter later here’s a crowd pleasing recipe that is ready in a flash.

If you’re the type to plan ahead, you can make the chicken yourself in advance, and cook off the pasta the night before to make assembling this even faster.

This was my very own creation and is EASY! I hope you enjoy this salad recipe. I’m going to try and post up more since we’re in the middle of summer and if you’re like me you hate slaving in a hot kitchen when the weather is nice outside.

Happy cooking.
