This sounded really yummy, but I don't eat pasta, so I dropped the orzo and artichoke hearts and mixed the sauce with spagetti squash instead, then topped it with the chicken and sauce. Everyone seemed to really like this lower carb alternative.
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.
36 Reviews for Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomato Orzo
The "sauce" was not very good and I could not come up with a way to fix it. I am not sure if it was the sun dried tomatoes or what but it just did not taste good.
I did not double the sauce or halve the pasta and thought it was great with the sauce lightly applied. Some may consider it dry but this is how I was served pasta in Rome.
A very satifying dish.
I made this recipe based on the many positive reviews and as others suggested I doubled the sauce. The dish came out fine but I found that the fresh marjoram I used overpowered all the other flavors. Instead of sprinkling on marjoram at the end, I would substitute for flat-leaf parsley if you have it or leave off all-together. Probably would not make again.
This is so good! I just finished my plate and I want more. I didn't have any artichokes, so I left them out. I can only ever find sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, so I did what a previous reviewer did and used the oil for my cooking. I also took everyone's advice and made extra sauce. I'd previously had a bad Orzo experience, so this time I followed the directions exactly on the box, and it turned out great. It was delicious, especially the zap that the red wine vinegar adds. I can't wait to have more of this!
