Chicken and Orzo Goodness

Trader Joes has orzo now. Or maybe they did before but I just didn't notice. Anyway, I was so happy to see it on the pasta aisle. For dinner, I made grilled chicken with orzo and side of pita chips, hummus and tzatziki. So yummy.
For the orzo, I first sauteed onions until they were carmelized, added some salt, pepper, greek seasoning and pine nuts. At the end, right before I added the cooked orzo, I must admit to melting about 3 tablespoons of butter in the pan. So many calories but so worth it.
