Chicken Breast and Vegetable Orzo Pasta

This one has pretty much everything it needs. The chicken meat mixed with orzo pasta make it hearty, but the baby spinach, tomatoes, and dill complete it. As for the aromas, let the spices and herbs do their thing together with a touch of honey sweetness.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
