Mediterranean Chicken and Orzo Salad

One of my biggest pregnancy cravings this time around is Mediterranean food. I could eat it all day, for every. single. meal. I was craving our mom’s pasta salad, and thought it would be really good with a little mediterranean twist. I found this recipe and tweaked it, and we will be eating this one again and again and again.
