Ingredients 

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, stems removed and sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup minced onion or shallot
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh garlic
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Heat 1 ½ teaspoons of the olive oil in a large non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot add in the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Sauté until the chicken is thoroughly cooked then remove it from the skillet onto a plate.
  • Add the remaining ½ teaspoon of olive oil to the skillet then add in the onion and mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 2-3 minutes or until the onion and mushrooms start to soften.
  • Add in the orzo and garlic and sauté for about a minute. Add in the white wine and use the bottom of a wooden spoon to scrape up any brown bits. Pour in the chicken broth, stir everything together and bring it to a boil.
  • Once boiling, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for approximately 9 minutes or until the orzo is al dente. Remove the lid and if there is any excess liquid remaining continue to cook uncovered for another minute.
  • Add the cooked chicken back into the skillet and stir in the chopped herbs and Parmesan cheese until everything is combined. Taste for seasoning. Garnish with more Parmesan cheese and herbs. Serve immediately.
