Recipe Fridays: Orzo with Spinach, Feta, and Chicken

One of my go-to cookbooks when I'm in the mood for something new and quick is Everyday Food: Great Food Fast. It has a bunch of fairly simple yet delicious recipes. I recently tried the Orzo with Spinach and Feta, but added a few things. You can find the original (meatless) recipe here. Mine is as follows...

Half box of orzo
1 lb of spinach
2 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
Salt and pepper
Crushed red pepper, to taste

-Saute chopped garlic in olive oil. Add in chicken with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste. Cook until done. Set aside.
-Cook orzo according to package directions.
-In still boiling water with the orzo, add the spinach. Cook until wilted. Drain water.
-In a bowl mix your cooked chicken and garlic with the orzo and spinach. Add in feta and mint. Add salt and pepper to taste.
-Serve hot or chilled.
