    List of Ingredients

    - 1 cup orzo pasta
    - 2 cups diced roasted chicken breast
    - 3/4 cup frozen (thawed) green peas
    - 1/2 cup sliced scallions
    - 1/2 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
    - 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed in olive oil, drained and chopped (reserve the oil)
    - 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried

    - 2 tablespoons oil from the sun-dried tomatoes
    - 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    - 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
    - 1/2 teaspoon salt
    - 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


    Cook the orzo according to package directions. Drain, rinse

    mixture and toss to mix. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour
    before serving. Serve over a bed of fresh salad greens, if desired.
