Chicken Pine Nut Orzo Salad

I created this hodge-podge of a salad that ended up being pretty yummy!

1/2 lb orzo pasta
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 package crumbled feta
1 clove garlic
2 chicken breasts marinated in balsamic vinegar salad dressing
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
dash onion powder
dash thyme
dash salt/pepper
fresh basil and parsley
pine nuts

1. Marinate chicken
2. Boil water for pasta
3. Cut cherry tomatoes in half
4. Chop fresh herbs
5. Toast pine nuts in a pan
6. Add ingredients (except pasta and chicken) to bowl and add olive oil and balsamic vinegar
7. When pasta is done, rinse in cold water and add to bowl.
8. Chop chicken and add to salad bowl.

Next time, I think I will add some red or green onion.
