    Very easy and delicious. I agree that 1 cup orzo would be small amount for 6 adults. Great recipe as written. Have also made with left over rotisserie chicken, half heavy cream and half milk, and added spinach with great results. Easy to add in your preferences

    My family loved this dish even our picky kids. It was comfort food at its best. The orzo was a change from regular pasta and we loved the creamy flavorful sauce. As we say at our house “It’s a keeper” Marcia in Sherman Texas

    It ended up being really tasty, but my chicken definitely took longer than ten minutes, and putting it back in the sauce makes the skin saugy. Next time I’ll sear the chicken then finish baking them in the oven will the orzo cooks.

    This was a dud. Too tangy (from sundried tomatoes?), yet also bland. Made exactly to recipe. No one liked it.

    We made the mistake of using too much seasoned salt, which ruined it. Yet, we could tell even through the salt overload that this was a delicious dish and are planning to make again. Note, go EASY on the seasoned salt!

    This was really good. I squeezed a lemon over the dish before adding the basil because it needed acid. Other than that, the recipe was perfect

    Didn’t have sun dried tomatoes. Used sun dried tomato paste and can of diced tomatoes (drained) instead. Was fabulous!

    It was delicious. I lived the flavors. The only alteration I made was to add 1/2 cup more rice and use chicken breast instead of thighs as this was what was available in my area.
