      I really liked this. Very tasty! I left out the oregano (was out) and the tomato (just don't like them) and it was still wonderful! Oh, and I also used canned chicken which made the recipe even easier!

      This was a very easy recipe to make, but I thought the seasonings overpowered everything else. I would maybe add the oregano and rosemary to taste. I added more orzo to even it out a little. I did eat a little piece of the cooked marinated chicken before mixing everything together and that was really good.
