TV Dinner: Chicken and Orzo Frittata

By: Mark Levine

Breakfast for dinner is still hot in the world of food trends but I like that you can enjoy this for dinner and still have great leftovers for breakfast ( and lunch if you're feeling lazy)...

Please welcome back Cooking Channel's TV Dinner -- watch it today, cook it tonight. Check out Giada's Everyday Italian today at 3:30pm ET. She'll be whipping up this Chicken and Orzo Frittata Recipe as well as some exceptional everyday lunches -- just in time for back to school.

By the time Giada sits down and savors, you still have a few hours to shop and get your own version of her fluffy, hearty frittata on the table.

The beauty of this little number is that you only need two cups of cooked chicken -- perfect if you have extra rotisserie bird in the fridge.  Fresh out of chicken? Frittatas are forgiving so survey your kitchen for substitutions and embrace your creative side.

If you DO end up making this TV Dinner, snap a shot and add it to our Facebook page -- we'd love to see your creations ( or variations).   Need inspiration? Get 28 more festive frittata recipes here.

What are your favorite frittata fillings?

Watch today's TV Dinner: Everyday Italian, this afternoon at 3:30pm ET.
