I’ve been feeling a little bit stretched in many different directions lately because we’re moving! I’ll share details about when, where and how soon – don’t want to jinx anything. So let’s just say I have lists of things to do today, tomorrow, within a week and within a month all over the place, boxes are starting to pile up in each room, random people are stopping by my house to buy my junk treasures, and I’m trying to work and create a recipe or two for you in between it all.
So these are my favorite three words these days. No. Cook. Dinner. No, maybe five favorite words: No Cook Dinner With Leftovers! Whether you’re packing and moving, or just really busy and it’s too hot to cook, you’ll love this easy recipe that feeds a crowd, or your family for at least 2 meals. Or it can feed just you for a few meals and lunches. Feel free to adapt the ingredients to whatever vegetables or grains you have on hand. It keeps beautifully for 3-4 days in the fridge!
If you can find whole wheat orzo, use it here for more fiber and a lower glycemic index. Otherwise, feel free to use farro instead of the orzo. I used a rotisserie chicken breast, but of course you can grill or roast your own chicken, or leave it out and keep if vegetarian.
Do you have any favorite no cook meals? Does anyone have any tips for doing a BIG move with a cat?
