It was tasteless and boring. I would not make again.

I didn't have Southwestern Chicken Breast strips so I added a package of taco seasoning and used leftover chicken breast pieces. Next time I will also add a can of corn to the recipe. I loved the orzo in it. It reminded me of enchiladas without the flour tortilla. I will make it again.
