    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Trim the fat from the chicken breasts, then cut into bite size pieces.
    2. 2
      Over medium-high heat, melt together the olive oil and butter in a large non-stick pan with high sides, then add the onion and sauté, stirring often, until just tender, about 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the minced garlic and chicken pieces sauté until chicken is browned on all sides, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the broth, orzo, lemon juice, oregano, basil, lemon zest, and pepper into to chicken mixture and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until pasta is to desired texture.
    5. 5
      Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir in the crumbled Gorgonzola, and serve.
    6. 6
      Goes well with a salad, crisp baby green beans, or asparagus.
    7. 7
      For a change of pace, try this recipe using cubed (boneless and skinless) turkey, duck, or even goose!
    8. 8
      A bit of proscuitto sauteed in with the chicken is good, too (not much, though - only about a tablespoon).

      A good, solid 4 stars from DH and myself. Quick and easy to make, I used the meat from a whole but small chicken. Certainly takes less than the 30 minutes of cooking the recipe suggests, more like 20. I was surprised it went together so quickly. I did not add the lemon zest, but did add the lemon juice. I also used a full 1/2 cup of blue cheese, which was fine for me, DH said it was just barely noticeable. A very brown recipe, needs some nice colorful, but plain veggies on the side. A good fall or winter recipe, as it is filling.

      This recipe didn't taste bad, but just not to my liking (personal preference). I didn't like the lemon in this. I love gorgonzola, but it seemed to overpower this dish. I made it as a main course, perhaps it would have been better as a side dish. Sorry...
