Basil Chicken Spinach Rice (or Orzo) One Pot Meal with Olives

Basil Chicken Spinach Rice (or Orzo) One Pot Meal with Olives

On this One-Pot Wednesday we have not one but two great one pot recipes for you to choose from! This is a basic one-pot recipe, and VitaClay makes it so easy!

The addition of olives and oregano give it a really great Mediterranean flavor, and the feta cheese tops it off and rounds out that unique flavor profile. So if you are looking for a dish that is new, fresh and flavorful, using ingredients you already have in the house but in a brand new way, this may be just the recipe for you. And with one-pot convenience, you don't have a lot to clean up afterwards either!
