Recipe makes four 3-ounce servings of cooked chicken with one heaping cup of vegetables and orzo.

Place chicken in a plastic bag or on a cutting board. Pound with a meat mallet, rolling pin, or flat side of pan to even the flesh to 3/4 inch of thickness. Spray a 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium high heat. Add chicken; saute for 5-7 minutes or until meat is browned on both sides. Add garlic, seasonings, and broth to skillet. Bring to a simmer. Add orzo and cover with a tight fitting lid. Simmer for 6 minutes. Stir in vegetables and continue to simmer for an additional 2 minutes. Toss in drained capers and chopped parsley.

Try serving this with steamed broccolini (calories not included).
