I also LOVE this dish! I used tri-color bow tie pasta instead of orzo. I love garlic so I used a giant clove and I would also use more sun dried tomatoes next time. Overall i loved this meal and I will definitely make it again!
Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomato Orzo
From EatingWell: March/April 2008
Sun-dried tomatoes and Romano cheese pack a flavorful punch along with the tantalizing aroma of fresh marjoram in this rustic Italian-inspired dish. Serve with sautéed fresh spinach or steamed broccolini.

I made this last week and I was surprised at how good it was. I'm not a huge fan of garlic so I used only 1/2 clove but the rest was wonderful. I didn't have Orzo so I used Tubitini (tubes) pasta - still came out good. I will make again and use Orzo.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe. It is very flavorful. So much so that I made it twice in one week!
I used the Magic Bullet to blend the sauce. Just be careful not to blend the sauce too much. Blend until there are some chunks still left. Don't over blend or it will be a little soupier.
I LOVE this recipe! it turned out fabulous! I did add more garlic and added moz cheese. I will probably add more sun dried tomoatoes next time. But very good!

Having read the other reviews, I doubled the amount of sauce which was perfect! LOVED the end result. Personally, I think the portions of Orzo were too big...but better having too much than not enough. Next time, will try a variation by doubling the amount of sun-dried tomatoes as we LOVE them and by adding Kalamata olives and topping with toasted Pine nuts for some crunch!
