You will need:
1 1/4 cups uncooked orzo
3 cups chopped cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken and picked the meat off)
1 1/2 cups trimmed arugula
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
6 tbsp goat cheese crumbles
-Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
-Combine pasta, chicken, and the next 6 ingredients (through oregano) in a large bowl; toss well.
-Combine vinegar, oil, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle vinegar mixture over pasta mixture; toss well to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.
I brought this over to my friend's house for a cookout and it was a big hit. It's such a fresh, warm weather recipe that's perfect as a side or the main dish.
