Curried Orzo Salad with Dried Cranberries

I have been making this salad for the last couple of years. It is great in the summertime when it is just too hot to cook. You can make it early in the day and refrigerate it until dinner time. (excuse the picture, I am NOT a food blogger:)

Curried Orzo Salad with Dried Cranberries
adapted from this recipe

1 cup orzo
3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 orange, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
2-3 tbsp olive oil
freshly ground pepper
2-3 chicken breasts

Cut up chicken into small cubes and cook on stove with salt and pepper. I sometimes use this.

Cook orzo according to package instruction, drain and pour in a bowl over the dried cranberries.

Mix curry powder, salt, sugar, orange and lemon juice and olive oil together. Pour over orzo and stir.

Serve warm or cold
