I knew this would be good, but it was even better than expected. I served this as part of a Greek buffet meal. I doubled the recipe and even so, none left over. I will make this again next week, it's that good, with a baked chicken. Thanks for the recipe.

Fantastic flavored rice/orzo dish!! I made this as written with a couple of changes. I made it using beef stock, forgot to check what I had on hand, and added regular onion to the oil first, then added in the garlic, rice and orzo, then followed the rest. I added the parmesan cheese on top and think I need to start adding that to all my rice dishes!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.

This was similar to a side dish which I've made for years but with the addition of the herbs which I thought were a great addition. I subbed a little sautéed onion and fresh chives for the green onion. Made for ZWT 9 Greece by one of "the Appliance Killers" - thanks Mikekey for being the "Mike and .... "!

Delicious! This was the perfect side to Greek Salmon With Tzatziki Sauce. In fact, DH and I ate all the pilaf--it was so good there were no leftovers. I used fresh basil from my garden and No Chicken Broth (vegetarian chicken broth). I will definitely make this again. Thanks, Mikekey! Made for ZWT9

I made this as a side dish to some meatloaf, so I used vegetable broth rather than chicken broth. The herbs stood out nicely, and were a great compliment to this. Made for a real nice treat for dinner tonight. Made for your Football Pool win, Great recipe Mike. :)

This was really delicious! I accidentally used beef broth instead of chicken. I really liked the herbs in this, especially the basil - yum! I also thought that the amount of garlic would be overwhelming so I used half the amount. I think that it would have been better if I used the amount listed! Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks Mikekey! :)

All the fresh herbs in this dish made is so good! I was hesitant on using the amount of garlic listed, but went ahead and was pleasantly surprise how not overpowering it was. I didn't have green onions so subbed chives but otherwise followed the recipe. Will make this again! Made for Everyday Holiday.
