Poached Chicken with Pomegranate Orzo
Shredded chicken with pomegranate seeds, orzo rice and cilantro.
||Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add red onion, garlic, and coriander and sauté for approximately 3 minutes.
||Add 2 cups of water and the chicken breasts to the pan. Simmer over medium-low heat for approximately 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
||Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside until it is cool enough to handle. Once cooled, shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
||In the meantime, add 1 cup of orzo to the pan juices and simmer, uncovered, until the water is absorbed and the pasta is al dente, approximately 10 minutes.
||Transfer the orzo to a non-reactive bowl. Add the chicken, pomegranate seeds, cilantro, maple syrup, and white wine vinegar and mix well.
