Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomato Orzo

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (336 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I made this for dinner last night and my husband and I just LOVED it!!! Next time, I will double the amount of sauce and cut the orzo in half. There really was a lot. I doubled the garlic and could have tripled it. I had no artichokes...

Lower carb adjustment

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.

Would not make again

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.

Great without changes

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.

Rich and flavorful

Too much marjoram

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.

Easy to make

SO GOOD!

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!

the vinegar flavor, easy, short cooking time
