Stovetop, Frying pan, Pot (small), Knife


Cherry tomatoes

Step 1

Wash & halve the cherry tomatoes.


Step 2

Roughly chop the bacon into 1/2 inch pieces.

Chicken breast

Step 3

Butterfly the chicken breasts by slicing in half through the center, creating two equal portions. Pat the chicken dry. Season all over with salt & pepper. We also love a dash of garlic powder or Italian seasoning if you have.


Step 4

Cook the orzo according to package instructions.

Step 5

Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp, stirring & flipping occasionally, about 3-4 min. Transfer to a small bowl, leaving the grease in the pan.

Step 6

Drain the orzo & set aside.

Step 7

Add the chicken to the same pan over medium-high heat. Sear, undisturbed for 3-5 min on each side until golden, then transfer to a plate.

Step 8

Add in the cherry tomatoes. Sauté for 1 min over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low & add a 1/4 cup of water to the pan to deglaze the bottom.

Parmesan (grated)
Spinach (fresh)
Heavy cream

Step 9

Stir in the spinach & cook until wilted, about 1-2 min. Add in the bacon & parmesan cheese. Stir to combine. Finally stir in the heavy cream & mix well for 1 more min.

Step 10

Add the chicken & its juices back to the pan. Spoon the sauce over top & simmer all together for 2 more min then remove from the heat.

Olive oil

Step 11

Season the cooked orzo with a bit of olive oil or butter. Add a pinch of salt & pepper. Mix it all together. Serve the BLT chicken over the orzo & enjoy!
