Leftovers: Orzo w/ Chicken, Artichokes & Pesto



I almost didn't post this, because this is really just a meal made from leftovers.

Those seem to be the best kind lately.
I love making a pork tenderloin, then having pork sesame noodles the next night. A roast chicken turns into great chicken salad sandwiches the next day, and a brisket becomes my favorite brisket chili.

I made those wonderful stuffed artichokes and had some leftover grilled chicken breasts from last night's dinner.



Cut up some leftover cooked chicken & artichokes and toss them with slivers of sun dried tomatoes and orzo. Spoon some prepared basil pesto on top and dinner for tonight is served.

Your leftovers looks better than some of my leftovers.

I love orzo! You just reminded me of the Greek style grilled shrimp one that I'm obsessed with!
