    This was really good, my husband loved it. The only changes I made were to use chives instead of green onions (about 3 TBSP). My green onions aren't ready to be harvested yet, but I can't use my chives fast enough! Also, I added a little broth and cornstarch to make the sauce stretch a little more, we like our foods saucey! Oh, and I also used chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces instead of tenders. Overall , great weeknight dish with little prep time, especially if you use the tenders.

    This meal was OK but it didn't really hit the spot. I made my Greek seasoning by using 1/2 teaspoon each of 1/2t garlic powder, onion powder, cinnamon, marjoram, oregano and mint.

    My hubby and I love capers, so this seemed like a great idea. It was super quick, and so it's definitely going into the rotation at our house! The greek seasoning blend we had was purchased at the store, and it was very salty. So next time I'd skip out on salting the chicken or better yet, make my own spice blend. I also added about 1/4 cup of white wine to the pan to deglaze it and make it a little more saucy, and I think that definitely made the meal.

    I use McCormick's Gourmet Greek Seasoning. It really makes a difference compared to the other seasonings. I make this at least a few times a year. I use couscous instead of orzo.
