Chicken & Bacon With Vegetables and Orzo/Rice

READY IN: 50mins


  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil
  • 2
    cooked chicken breasts, cubed
  • 3
    slices hickory smoked thick sliced lean bacon, cut in 2 inch pieces
  • 6
    baby carrots, sliced
  • 3
    stalks celery, washed, diced
  • 1
    cup white onion, diced
  • 2
    green peppers, cored, seeded, diced
  • 1
    teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 12
    teaspoons McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning
  • 1
    cup dry orzo pasta
  • 1 12


  • In large frying pan with lid, add olive oil, bacon, chicken and all of the cut and diced vegetables.
  • Sprinkle with garlic salt.
  • Put the lid on and cook on low heat, uncover every 10 minutes and stir around with the spatula. You want the bacon to remain soft but cooked.
  • Add the McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning.
  • Heat the chicken broth in a large glass measuring cup in the microwave.
  • Add pasta and broth.
  • Stir. Put the lid on.
  • Cook on medium heat about five minutes.
  • Stir and Serve.
  • Note: I use Sysco Chicken Base & add water for my chicken broth each time a recipe calls for it. One small 16 oz. container will make 5 gallons of broth for very little cost.
  • The McCormick Salad Seasoning is made specifically for pasta salads and has great spices and dried cheeses in it.
  • I serve my High Rise Biscuits and Breadsticks with this dish.
