Chicken & Sun-Dried Tomato Orzo

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (360 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...

When my husband first saw it plated he said it looked like he was at a restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh, light flavors from the artichoke, sun dried tomatoes, and romano cheese. I could not find frozen artichoke hearts so I opted for canned and think it was just as tasty. I thought the amount of sauce was fine and not overpowering as some Italian marinara sauces are. I will definitely make this again, but hope I can find fresh marjoram and whole wheat orzo on the next go round.

I made this about a week ago and LOVED it. I couldn't find any whole wheat orzo, so we used small shells instead. I wasn't too keen on spending so much $$ on the fresh marjoram just for this dish, so I opted out of that and it still tasted great! Oh, and I put in about 4 cloves of garlic instad of 1. I would suggest doubling the sauce. It just didn't seem like enough (even after I made a little extra with just EVOO and chopped sundried tomatoes) for all of the pasta. Also, a few more romas would have been nice. It's a GREAT recipe that can easily be made even better.

I just made one change because I didn't have fresh marjoram - I used dried Italian seasoning, and I thought it turned out very well. Light and tasty.

I love this dish. It was easy but I think next time I will cut up the chicken in cubes and make little more sauce.
