Gluten Free Orzo Chicken Salad

This was my very own creating and it turned out so well, that the family asked me to keep it around. Bonus, this was a crazy easy recipe to make.  When I first made it I was not eating gluten free, but have since given it a tweak to match my gluten-free cooking needs. When weather is warmer, this is a great salad to make.  My gluten free orzo and chicken salad can be made for potlucks and family dinners. It is something that you can make in advance and serve when the weather is too hot outside to cook. I think you will like this recipe for gluten free orzo and chicken salad.
