Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive
    1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin bite-size strips
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    3 medium carrots, bias sliced or cut into thick matchsticks
    1 small onion, diced
    3/4 cup uncooked rosamarina or orzo pasta (5 1/2 oz)
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
    1/2 cup water
