    I decided to try this recipe based on all the reviews here and I was not disappointed! I doubled the recipe so we can have leftovers but it was all gone! Very easy to make and turned out perfectly. I will be making this again.

    Good, but needs more flavor. This is what I did. 1/4 cup chopped onion, pkg chicken bouillon, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp paprika , 1 1/3 cup broth. Next time: 2 bouillon, 1 tsp garlic, onion powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 cup chopped onion & celery and start with 2 tsp poultry seasoning. Everything else stays the same.

    Came out perfectly fluffy the first time. It was a little too salty for my taste, but was a hit overall. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

    so freaking delicious! i changed it up and used fresh onion and garlic and sauteed before adding to the broth. Then i cooked chicken breast in the skillet before browning the orzo. Soooo much flavor ! thank you for inspiring me 😘

    It was delicious!! It was so easy, too! I’ll be making this from now on!! I didn’t use all of the liquid, because it seemed like too much, and I’m glad I didn’t because it turned out very fluffy and perfect. I left out 1/3 cup of the liquid.

    Delicious! Making it again for the second time tonight. Simple, but distinct. Pairs well with most meat and veggie-heavy dishes.
