    10 to 12 asparagus spears, cut into pieces
  • Poitrine de poulet
    3 skinless chicken breasts

  1. Start cooking the orzo in a pot of boiling, salted water. Add the asparagus to the pot 3 minutes before the pasta is finished cooking. Rinse under cold water and drain.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan. Sprinkle the breasts with Greek seasoning if desired. Cook the breasts for 12 to 15 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre, turning them at the halfway point. Chop.
