1 cup uncooked orzo pasta

1 Lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed

3 tsp. olive oil, divided

3 garlic cloves, minced

Cook orzo according to package directions.  Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken in 2 teaspoons oil for 6-7 minutes or until no longer pink.  Remove and keep warm.

In the same skillet, cook garlic in remaining oil for 1 minute or until tender.  Stir in the tomatoes, beans, Italian seasoning and salt.  Bring to a boil.  Stir in broccoli and chicken; heat through.  Drain orzo. Stir into chicken mixture.
