Resembling a risotto, this one-pan chicken is straight forward and full of flavor from sun dried tomatoes, herbs and Parmesan cheese.
This recipe combines some of my favorite ingredients, like pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs and cheese (which is not surprising for someone coming from Mediterranean region).
Orzo, a small, rice-shaped pasta, is frequently used in Mediterranean cooking. Versatile and neutral in taste, it complements a variety of dishes, adding texture and substance.
The dish resembles risotto, yet it is quick to make and full of Italian flavor. It is prepared in one pot or skillet by frying chicken, onion, sun dried tomatoes and orzo, and slowly adding chicken stock until all liquid is absorbed (no need to cook pasta separately). You can use either standard type of orzo or smaller one, called “risini”.
