Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomato Orzo

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (342 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...

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!

How long is everyone cooking the sauce for (after it boils)? I felt like mine came out too watery. I also didn't have a blender so I used a magic bullet. Any help would be appreciated. I loved the flavors of the dish but felt like I was eating soup (didn't have orzo was just eating the chicken with the sauce).

Overall though, I can tell this is going to be an amazing dish!

Made this last night. Husband raved about it.
I would also double the sauce and increase the garlic. Also think it needed a big pinch of salt.
Used regular orzo as I don't care for the taste of whole wheat.
Really a delicious dish.
The chicken could also be grilled instead of pan fried.
Yummy. A definite make again

I made this last night for dinner. I substituted bowtie pasta for the orzo, and I didn't have marjoram so I used oregano instead....I thought the one clove of garlic was skimpy, so I added 7-8 small ones instead, and I am glad I did. I also added about 3/4 cup of frozen spinach that I sauteed in a tsp of olive oil with black pepper and garlic powder first.

I sprinkled a pinch of mozzarella over the top of the prepared plate and let sit for a few minutes before serving.

This meal came out fantastic! Even our very picky teenager liked it!
