Chicken and Orzo Casserole for two

Spicy food for two! I enjoy spicy foods and want to serve them even when there are just two for dinner. I had two chicken breasts and looked through my cabinet for something to pair the chicken with. The Mexican hot style tomato sauce just seemed to fit what my taste buds where wanting. Adding orzo and green chiles seemed the natural thing to pair the flavors with. It was delicious!

Rice can be used in place of orzo if desired.
