Without Further Fanfare, we bring you Cheesy Corny Orzo and BBQ Chicken in a Biscuit, brought to you by Simply Anonymom, she of yesterday's Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting! Take it away, Anon!

Simply Anonymom's Cheesy Corny Orzo
1 can chicken broth
1/2 C orzo
1/2 C corn (I use frozen white corn)
pinch dried parsley
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 C sharp cheddar grated

Put chicken broth, orzo, and corn into pot on stove. Bring to boil then reduce to simmer, add seasoning and cover. Stirring occasional until orzo is tender and liquid is gone (like with rice). Stir in Cheddar and serve. Yumm-o!

Simply Anonymom's BBQ Chicken in a Biscuit
This recipe is so cheap, easy and fast. A perfect trifecta!
1-2 chicken breasts
1 bottle BBQ sauce
2 rolls of canned layer biscuits
Minced jalapeƱos
1/4 onion sliced, grilled
2-3 slices cheese (I used cheddar the size of sliced American cheese)

In sauce pan over medium heat, add chicken breasts and BBQ sauce. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and pulls apart (about 25 minutes). Remove chicken from sauce and shred. Spray cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Open one container flakey biscuits. Tear biscuits in half and put in the cupcake pans. Add shredded chicken to the biscuits. Top chicken with minced jalapeƱos, onion and cheese. Open second container of biscuits. Rip biscuits in half and top the chicken mixture. Bake in oven according to biscuit directions (mine was 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes).

OK, Bloggy Friends...Get those recipes to me! is the place to send 'em. I'll be lurking, waiting for your entry!

Nina said...

That was a cute photo. My son loved the cat. He has a new thing for cats and wants one so bad.

Michelle said...

Oooo, I'm SO into that corn orzo. That sounds so lovely. I'm thinking Sunday dinner maybe.

and stupid question but ... did you get my email with the recipes? Sent it (I think) on Tuesday... maybe Wednesday?

Marrdy said...

Love that kitty picture!

Kathleen said...

That orzo recipe sounds good. I've had a box of orzo in my cabinet for ages (I don't think it's bad though) and I never know what to make with it, except for that one Mediterranean salad I made for a picnic once (hence the remaining orzo in the box.)

Honey, that's a lot of links.
You go girl.
And I love Orzo---great sounding recipe.
And I would eat all those chicken in a biscuits if I made them. ALL OF THEM!
